This study examines a driver assistance system to prevent unnecessary deceleration at a signalized intersection. The assistance system presents the distance required to pass through signalized intersections without decelerating. The driving simulator experiments are carried out to evaluate the performance of the system. The system encourages the earlier deceleration and prevents the unnecessary deceleration. These effects contribute to reduce the fuel consumption. In addition, the assistance

This effect achieved the reduction of the collision risk to the preceding vehicle. KEY WORDS: human engineering, driver behavior, driver support / Eco Drive, Signalized Intersection [C2]
