Evaluation of Active Safety Performance of Man-Vehicle System
Published May 31, 1998 by National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in United States
Human factors have been found to be the major cause of vehicle accidents. We studied the driver-vehicle, closed-loop system. Using the motion-type driving simulator the active- safety performance of 100 ordinary drivers was examined for two conditions: obstacle avoidance and slippery curve control. From the resulting data a computer model was developed. After confirming the validity of the computer model, the active-safety performance of drivers under the two conditions was better understood and in the case of the slippery curve condition, driver assistant devices are feasible.
