This book has been generated by the EC-funded Dedicated Road Infrastructure for Vehicle Safety in Europe (DRIVE) collaborative research programme. it brings together work on driver behaviour, traffic safety, and human-machine interfacing to review the state of the art in Europe in terms of systems specification, design, evaluation, and implementation for near-future vehicles. Changes in vehicle functionality will be fundamental through the 1990's, and this book demonstrates that a purely technology driven approach is a recipe for disaster; integrated and co-ordinated multidisciplinary initiatives in complex system design are preferable and are more likely to deliver system efficiency, acceptability, and safety. It is aimed at transport ergonomists, vehicle designers, HCI researchers, applied psychologists and cognitive ergonomists.show more
