Age-related difference in steering control under reduced visibility conditions

Rui Ni, Bobby Nguyen, Yan Zhuo
2013 Displays (Guildford)  
The current study investigated age-related differences in a steering control task under low visibility conditions.  ...  These results suggest that under reduced visibility conditions, older drivers may have increased accident risks due to decreased ability to successfully steer the vehicle.  ...  In the current study, we examined age-related differences in steering control under reduced visibility conditions.  ...

Displaying Optic Flow to Simulate Locomotion: Comparing Heading and Steering

Georgios K. Kountouriotis, Richard M. Wilkie
2013 i-Perception  
Optic low can be used by humans to determine their direction of heading as well as controlling steering.  ...  The intermediate dot-low conditions (with fewer and faded dots) revealed that some conditions that led to accurate heading judgements were insuficient for accurate steering.  ...  Under this proposal, steering control would be executed by aligning the FoE with the desired direction of travel.  ...

Prevention of coordinated eye movements and steering impairs driving performance

D. E. Marple-Horvat, M. Chattington, M. Anglesea, D. G. Ashford, M. Wilson, D. Keil
2005 Experimental Brain Research  
Eye movements and steering are tightly linked, with the eyes leading, which means that the oculomotor controller can assist the neural centres controlling steering.  ...  When approaching a bend in the road, a driver looks across to the inside kerb before turning the steering wheel.  ...  Thus, under test conditions, males crashed as frequently as under control conditions (and as females under control conditions); but females moderated their driving, reducing the number of crashes by 29%  ...

Model-Based Prediction of Operation Consequences When Driving a Car to Compensate for a Partially Restricted Visual Field by A-Pillars

Sayako Ueda, Toshihisa Sato, Takatsune Kumada
2021 Frontiers in Human Neuroscience  
In the tracking task, participants tracked a moving target on a computer screen with visible and invisible cursors.  ...  Consequently, we found that the decrease in tracking performance induced by visual feedback restriction predicted the decrease in steering smoothness induced by visual field restriction, suggesting that  ...  The reduced tracking performance was calculated by normalizing the values of the indices in the invisible cursor condition (IC) by those in the visible cursor condition (VC), and the reduced driving performance  ...

Aging and working memory modulate the ability to benefit from visible speech and iconic gestures during speech-in-noise comprehension

Louise Schubotz, Judith Holler, Linda Drijvers, Aslı Özyürek
2020 Psychological Research  
Individual differences in verbal working memory and inhibitory control partly accounted for age-related performance differences.  ...  The speech signal was either clear or embedded in multitalker babble. Additionally, there were two visual-only conditions (visible speech, visible speech + gesture).  ...  Rather, age-related differences in the comprehension of SiN in the visible speech and visible speech + gesture conditions could at least in part be attributed to individual differences in verbal WM.  ...

Eye Movements Drive Steering: Reduced Eye Movement Distribution Impairs Steering and Driving Performance

Mark Wilson, Mark Chattington, Dilwyn E. Marple-Horvat
2008 Journal of Motor Behavior  
The authors discuss the possibility that the deterioration in performance is a cost of maintaining steering when eye-movement driving input to the steering controller is reduced.  ...  Performance decreased under pressure, and the decrement was associated with a narrowing of the range of eye movements and a reduced correlation of eye movements with steering.  ...  Mark Chattington is a research student in neural and visual control of movement research at IRM. He is researching the importance of eye movements coordinated with steering for driving performance.  ...

2016 Translational Vision Science & Technology  
In fog, visibility (i.e., contrast) is reduced with increasing distance.  ...  An increase in driving risk under fog would be expected for healthy and glaucoma subjects due to the difficulty in performing anticipatory steering from the reduced vision at far distance caused by the  ...

Movement control in older adults: Does old age mean middle of the road?

Rachael K. Raw, Georgios K. Kountouriotis, Mark Mon-Williams, Richard M. Wilkie
2012 Journal of Experimental Psychology: Human Perception and Performance  
External constraints (narrow paths and fast speeds) prevented this strategy and revealed age-related declines in skills central to manual control and driving.  ...  The older group showed worse performance in the highly constrained conditions.  ...  We wanted to determine whether there are general strategies used to compensate for age-related deficits, so we examined the relationship between speed and accuracy in two different motor control tasks.  ...

Georgios K. Kountouriotis, Rosalind C. Floyd, Peter H. Gardner, Natasha Merat, Richard M. Wilkie
2012 Journal of Experimental Psychology: Human Perception and Performance  
Here we examined the role of gaze during high-speed locomotor steering and in particular the role of feedback from the visible road edges.  ...  When either of the road edges were removed, we observed systematic shifts in steering and gaze direction dependent upon both the required road position and the visible edge.  ...  Thanks to John Wann for the loan of the eye-tracking equipment used in these experiments.  ...

Lana M. Trick, Ryan Toxopeus, David Wilson
2010 Accident Analysis and Prevention  
Research on how older drivers react to natural challenges in the driving environment is relevant for both the research on mental workload and that on age-related compensation.  ...  For hazard RT, the combined effects of high-density traffic and navigational challenge were more deleterious in good visibility conditions than in fog.  ...  We would also like to thank an anonymous reviewer who suggested that we include the individual differences analyses.  ...
