In this paper, we propose a solution to reduce the stress level of the driver, minimize fuel consumption and improve safety. The system analyzes the driving style and the driver’s workload during the trip while driving. If it discovers an area where the stress increases and the driving style is not appropriate from the point of view of energy efficiency and safety for a particular driver, the location of this area is saved in a shared database. On the other hand, the implemented solution warns…

Verification of Driving Workload Using Vehicle Signal Data for Distraction-Minimized Systems on ITS

A method of quantifying the driving workload and setting five discrete driving workload levels (DWLs) by simple vehicle signal data, using subjective measurement, in order to offer criteria for distraction-minimized systems on intelligent transportation system (ITS).

Real-time Estimation of Driver’s Mental Workload Using Physiological Indexes

A method of a driver’s mental workload level estimation in real time using physiological indexes, and the utility of a mental workload indicator for the authors' driving simulator is described.

National Motor Vehicle Crash Causation Survey

NHTSA’s National Center for Statistics and Analysis (NCSA) has conducted the National Motor Vehicle Crash Causation Survey (NMVCCS) of crashes with focus on the factors relat­ ed to pre-crash events involving light passenger vehicles.

Can voice interaction help reducing the level of distraction and prevent accidents ? Meta-Study on Driver Distraction and Voice Interaction

Well-designed speech-based in-vehicle systems will allow drivers to keep their eyes on the road and their hands on the wheel, making it possible to improve driving performance and reduce accident hazard.

This modeling approach not only successfully models the mental workload measured by the six workload scales in NASA-TLX in terms of subnetwork utilization, but also simulates driving performance, reflecting mental workload from both subjective and performance-based measurements.

Real-time nonintrusive monitoring and prediction of driver fatigue

A probabilistic model is developed to model human fatigue and to predict fatigue based on the visual cues obtained, and it was found to be reasonably robust, reliable, and accurate in fatigue characterization.
