Experimental evidence for the field of safe travel
MetadataShow full item record
Regression analysis of driver ratings of alerts issued by an in-vehicle active safety system during a field operational test identified contextual factors that influence driver acceptance of system alerts. A nominal characterization of pedestrian location and two quantitative measures of pedestrian motion predict more than 60% of the variability in driver ratings and do not interact. This finding is empirical support for the classic notion of the field of safe travel (Gibson & Crooks, 1938).
