A General Conceptual Framework for Modelling Behavioural Effects of Driver Support Functions

Abstract : In recent years, the number of in-vehicle functions interacting with the driver has increased rapidly. This includes both driving support functions (e.g. anti-lock brakes, collision warning systems, adaptive cruise control) and functions supporting non-driving tasks, e.g. communication and entertainment functions. Today, many of these functions are also featured on portable computing systems, commonly referred to as nomadic devices. Moreover, in order to handle this growth in diversity and complexity of in-vehicle functionality, several types of meta functions for human-machine interface integration and adaptation have been proposed. Such functions, often referred to as workload management functions, are intended to resolve potential conflicts between individual functions with respect to their interaction with the driver (see Engström et al., 2004; Broström et al., 2006). The term driver support functions will henceforth be used to refer to in-vehicle functions that support what drivers do, whether related to driving or not.
