Physiological and Response Measurements in Driving Tasks 720139

Driver response and performance can be quantified by observing the stimulus-response environment. Yet the driver's inherent adaptability allows him to have seemingly adequate performance in potentially hazardous driving situations even though he may be operating near the acceptable safety limits. Physiological measures of the driver's internal state can provide further quantification of his performance level and can give a measure of his workload or safety performance margin.
Measures of driver physiological and control responses have been made under gust disturbance conditions with the subject's car operating at various speeds. The experimental techniques and data are described, and correlations between the situational parameters and driver stress and control response are shown.
