Steady-State Cornering Behavior of Novice and Experienced Drivers: In Case of Rear Wheel Steering Vehicle 940383
The skill acquisition process of novice drivers under conditions of steady-state cornering with a rear wheel steering vehicle is compared with the visual and control performance of experienced drivers. After a short-term training session, the vehicle control skills of the novice drivers were considerably improved. The above findings correspond with the results that novice drivers perform with a front wheel steering vehicle. The visual behavior of the novice drivers, however, presented a striking contrast to that of the experienced drivers. The experienced drivers concentrated their eye fixations on the inside of the course, while the novice drivers paid more attention to the vehicle's direction of travel.
