OBJECTIVE This paper introduces a robust, real-time system for detecting driver lane changes. BACKGROUND As intelligent transportation systems evolve to assist drivers in their intended behaviors, the systems have demonstrated a need for methods of inferring driver intentions and detecting intended maneuvers. METHOD Using a "model tracing" methodology,(More)
A method for detecting drivers’ intentions is essential to facilitate operating mode transitions between driver and driver assistance systems. We propose a driver behavior recognition method using Hidden Markov Models (HMMs) to characterize and detect driving maneuvers and place it in the framework of a cognitive model of human behavior. HMM-based steering(More)
The purpose of this study is to examine the test/retest consistency of physiological responses induced by mental tasks. Fifteen healthy male university students were recruited as participants. They were instructed to perform a 5-min Multi-Attribute Task Battery (MATB) trial three times successively. The task difficulty level of the tracking task of the(More)
Drivers adopt nearly constant deceleration rates when intending to stop at a distant target. In driving simulators however we often observe different control strategies. Depending on simulator fidelity, deceleration profiles range from saw-tooths to multi-modal profiles to profiles that do resemble those seen in reality. These deviations from reality(More)
Pattern Recognition Techniques to Infer Driver Intentions Hiren M. Mandalia Dr. Dario Salvucci, Ph.D. Driving is a complex task that requires constant attention from the mind and the body. Automobile drivers today are under high risks, thanks to the ever-expanding telematics industry, cell-phone driving and other distractions. Inferring driver intentions,(More)
Adaptive support has the potential to keep the operator optimally motivated, involved, and able to perform a task. In order to use such support, the operator's state has to be determined from physiological parameters and task performance measures. In an environment where the task of an ambulance dispatcher was simulated, two studies have been carried out to(More)
