Driver Adaptation to Information and Assistance Systems brings together recent work by the project ADAPTATION, to provide a better understanding of drivers’ adaption processes, the effect of technology use, the impact of age and the effects of the system’s performance and the level of automation.

This book is based on the research carried out within ADAPTATION, the Marie-Curie co-funded Initial Training Network project which has studied drivers’ behavioural adaptation to new driver information and assistance technologies from an integrative perspective.

Driver information and assistance systems have emerged as an integral part of modern road vehicles in order to support the driver while driving. They make use of the newest information technologies in order to enhance driver awareness, safety and comfort, and thereby avoiding driver errors and accidents.  

The book aims to provide the reader with;

  • A better understanding of drivers’ adaptation processes
    Following information and assistance system use at different levels (regulatory level, cognitive level, motivational level
  • The effects of technology use on drivers’ behaviour
    Perspectives to distinguish the short-, medium- and long-term effects
  • The impact of age
    An appreciation of the impact this driver characteristic has on technology use and skill acquisition
  • The effects of the system’s performance and the level of automation
    Important system characteristics influencing drivers’ adaptation

About the Editors

Alan Stevens is Chief Research Scientist and Research Director, Transportation, at the Transport Research Laboratory (TRL), in the UK, where he has been working on the application of new technology to transport for 25 years.  He is an internationally recognised expert in human-machine interaction (HMI) in the driving environment and is Editor-in-Chief of the international peer-reviewed journal, IET Intelligent Transport Systems.

Corinne Brusque has been Scientific Director in charge of the evaluation of research units and researchers at Ifsttar (French Institute of Science and Technology for Transport, Development and Networks) since 2013. Her main research topics concern the factors affecting in-vehicle technology adoption, drivers’ exposure to distraction related to in-vehicle technologies and the impact of in-vehicle technologies on drivers’ behaviour.

Josef Krems is Professor of Cognitive and Industrial Psychology at Chemnitz University of Technology.  His current research projects focus on three areas: traffic and transport (safety, driver assistance, green driving and sustainability); human factors (human-machine interaction, usability); and user acceptance. He has published or co-edited 15 books and more than 150 papers in books, scientific journals and congress proceedings.

ABI - Driver Adaptation to Information and Assistance Systems

Book readership

Driver Adaptation to Information and Assistance Systems will be of interest to academics working in behavioural adaptation to new technologies, as well as professionals in automotive companies and equipment manufacturers, product designers and suppliers, government transport and safety agencies, and road safety managers.
