An Integrated Auditory Warning Approach for Driver Assistance and Active Safety Systems 2007-01-0443
Production vehicles are becoming increasingly equipped with driver assistance and active safety systems that warn the driver of potential crash threat situations. For such systems, it is important to understand how drivers perceive and respond to these warnings. An integral part of such systems is the manner in which auditory warnings are presented to drivers. This research measured the ability of drivers to effectively localize warning sound candidates, and developed an integrated approach for presenting these warnings to drivers in vehicles equipped with multiple driver assistance and active safety systems.
