Driver Acceptance of Alerts in the Pre-Crash Phase of Intersection Incidents

The purpose of this paper is to document the utility of a novel empirical approach to quantifying the relative level with which drivers are likely to welcome an alert from an active safety system. The authors discuss an experiment that applies this approach and show how the level of acceptance varies across traffic situations and driver point of view. The results reveal that both point-of-view and encroachment direction should be considered when designing active safety systems that would alert drivers to impending encroachment incidents.
