Driver State and Behaviour

Driver State and Behaviour covers how we actually behave in traffic, not just how we are supposed to behave. It covers, for instance, the permanent and temporary state of the driver, such as fitness for driving (impaired drivers), why and how we take risks (late for work) and what we do to compensate for risks (slow down in a downpour). It also covers the driver’s interaction with in-vehicle information systems (including nomadic devices) and interaction with advanced driver assistance systems, how the driver reacts to and accepts warnings as well as automatic interventions of active safety systems such as emergency braking.
