Evaluating Way-finding without An In-Vehicle Experimenter: Methodology 2006-01-0578

Two navigation systems, one a turn-by-turn and the other a moving-map, were compared using the same routes and waypoints in the area of Roanoke, VA. Challenges as a result of their varying algorithms used to determine route guidance were overcome in finding a common route between the two systems. The study was designed to be conducted without an in-vehicle experimenter. This approach was thought important to reduce potential experimental biases. The methodology described provides a low-cost, valid method to test way-finding using the actual system in its actual driving environment. The purpose of this paper is not to discuss the benefit of a moving-map system as compared to a turn-by-turn system, but to discuss the methodology of this way-finding study conducted without an in-vehicle experimenter. Suggested data to collect and/or analyze as well as lessons learned are also discussed.
