Evaluation of the Relationship between Driver Risk (Subjective Feeling of Danger) and the Amount of Perspiration 2006-01-0816

In this research, driver risk (subjective feeling of danger) during pylon slalom and drift turning was evaluated by measuring the amount of driver perspiration. The result (the product of the amount of maximum perspiration and the perspiration amount area at the unit running time) is believed to correspond to a subjective rating of the feeling of danger. Moreover, a peculiar phenomenon was observed during drift cornering in which a large degree of fear was experienced if there was a possibility that the vehicle might spin, thus considerably increasing the amount of perspiration. Here, perspiration amount area shows the total amount of perspiration, additional to baseline levels, over a given time frame. And, unit running time shows the same as saying ‘averaged over time’
