Influence Mechanism of Visual Perception on Driver's Speed Control and Steering Behaviors
  • Description
  • E-Book
  • Author(s) Information

Visual perception and its relationship to the subsequent manipulative behaviors are fundamental for people to recognize the world. The most important manipulations of drivers are speed control and steering, which could possibly guarantee a safe driving. So, to avoid accidents the driver does a series of judgments, decisions and actions, which could be impact by the visual information it perceived.

Over the past few decades, visual perception has gradually gone from the psychology domain to its relevant fields, like the transportation science and engineering, to play a more important role in the human factors in transportation. This books presents the state of the art in speed perception and its application with a kind of edge rate markings installed on roadways with empirical on-road experiments and field observations of naturalistic driving data. Reaching a great combination of the fundamental theory in cognitive psychology and the issues in traffic and transportation engineering, this books is one of the most practical and up-to-date references available on the subject of influence of visual perception on drivers’ speed control and steering behaviors. This allows the knowledge of visual perception and transportation accessible to a wider range of audiences, and also introduce new thoughts and new methods for decision-makers, practitioners in dealing with traffic safety or related issues. The fundamental concepts, experimental process, statistical analyses, and comprehensive discussions are covered in detail, providing the readers a systematic understanding of the field.
