How Behaviorally Assisted Car Driver Interaction Can Improve Traffic Safety

The Vienna Convention on Road Traffic demands that the driver has to be able to control his vehicle at all time while driving. According to this demand, common Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) are designed to provide information about vehicle status, driven environment and road traffic. Drivers themselves need to select the appropriate reaction based on this information. Using behavioral control systems in a more direct way in ADAS development enables the driver to perform the appropriate behavior without consciously selecting it. Established and stable stimulus-response patterns are used which lead to reliable and appropriate behavior in a given situation. An ADAS based on the principles of behavior is less time consuming, even in situations characterized by a high cognitive workload. Such systems also avoid any misinterpretation of signals resulting in inappropriate behavior, which is seldom not observed in cognitive designed systems.
