Modelling Driver Behaviour in Automotive Environments

Critical Issues in Driver Interactions with Intelligent Transport Systems

Editors: Cacciabue, Carlo (Ed.)

  • Long-awaited, as the last best-known books containing recent results, tendencies, and paradigms were published in 1985 and 1993
  • An important, wide-reaching, and tightly edited volume involving a diverse range of disciplines where in particular human factors, behavioral modeling, ergonomics, and psychology play an important role
  • The authors are world class experts in the field –- this could become the authoritative text on this topic

About this book

The study of all technological systems, in terms of design, safety assessment or training purposes requires that significant attention is dedicated to the human perspective. Techniques for user-centred design are normally applied and exploited before implementing new control devices or safety systems that are managed by a human user or operator. This demands that appropriate models of Human Machine Interaction and associated taxonomies for classifying human behaviour are available for theoretical and practical application.

In the automotive environment, the paradigm of the joint human-machine system is called the "Driver-Vehicle-Environment" (DVE) model. Several studies have pointed out the unique nature of this domain, which can refer the standardisation and normalisation of behaviours, contexts and technology.

This book presents a general overview of the various factors that contribute to modelling human behaviour in this specialised environment. All of these aspects contribute to creating the overall picture of the DVE model, and demonstrate the scope and dimensions of the many different interaction processes that demand modelling consideration.

This long-awaited volume, written by world experts in the field, presents state-of-the-art research and case studies. It will be invaluable reading for professional practitioners graduate students, researchers and alike.

Pietro Carlo Cacciabue is a senior scientist at the Institute for the Protection and Security of the Citizen, within the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission, Ispra, Italy. He is the author of two monographs and several book and journal publications relating to safety engineering and human-machine interaction in the domains of energy production and transportation. He is the principal Editor, together with Erik Hollnagel, of The International Journal of Cognition, Technology & Work.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"Thirty-seven authors contribute 21 papers to this book. … They provide a multifaceted description of driver-behavior modeling based on their expertise in different fields, and the state of the art in this field is described from many perspectives. … The book presents a comprehensive overview of topics for development and open issues characterizing potential new research. It is intended for researchers and practitioners; managers will also find the book useful." (O. Balci, ACM Computing Reviews, September, 2008)
