Eco-driving Versus Green Wave Speed Guidance for Signalized Highway Traffic: A Multi-vehicle Driving Simulator Study

Dening Niu, Jian Sun
2013 Procedia - Social and Behavioral Sciences  
In this paper, two dynamic speed guidance strategies (green wave speed guidance strategy (GWSGS) and eco-driving speed guidance strategy (EDSGS)) through in-car display were tested.  ...  A new multi-vehicle driving simulator platform taking into account drivers interactions was built, and the two strategies for highway system were programmed through the script language provided by Virtools  ...  Thus, the vehicle can be driven at its optimal speed while travelling through several signalized corridors without stopping or using an eco-friendly driving style, based on real-time speed advice.  ...

Efficiency of visual time-sharing behavior

Tuomo Kujala
2009 Proceedings of the 1st International Conference on Automotive User Interfaces and Interactive Vehicular Applications - AutomotiveUI '09  
Between-subject analysis revealed that the list-style menu structure supports more efficient and systematic, and thus, safer interaction while driving than the grid-style menu, in terms of time-sharing  ...  The results also suggest that the fewer items in a view, the more efficient and safer the interaction in terms of time-sharing.  ...  All these aspects could support faster, and thus, perhaps safer interaction while driving.  ...
