Effects of Gaze Duration on Velocity Perception of Oncoming Vehicles

Before turning vehicles to the right, drivers have to estimate the velocity of the oncoming vehicles. They sometimes decide to take a right turn after glancing at the oncoming vehicles, in which case the estimated velocity may not be sufficiently accurate. In this study, the influence of gaze duration on the velocity perception of oncoming vehicles was investigated. An oncoming vehicle was simulated by a square on the screen. The gaze durations were set as 0.3, 0.6, 0.9, and 1.2 s. In the experiments, participants had to evaluate the oncoming velocity by the magnitude estimation method.
