A SIMULATION ENVIRONMENT TO EVALUATE DRIVER PERFORMANCES WHILE INTERACTING WITH TELEMATICS SYSTEMS

Gennaro Costagliola, Sergio Di Martino, Filomena Ferrucci

Abstract

The evaluation of user interfaces for vehicular telematics systems is a challenging task, since it is necessary to understand the effects of interaction on driving performances. To this aim, in 2005 we developed and presented a framework specifically conceived for the indoor evaluation of these systems. In this paper we present some significant improvements of that proposal. In particular, we describe a graphical analysis tool able to provide a clear and deep insight about driver behaviors using the high amount of data generated by the simulator. Moreover, we report on the evaluation analysis that has been performed to assess the effectiveness of the framework for measuring driving performances.
