Abstract

Most driving simulators cannot replicate real driving dynamics and thus fail to convey a realistic driving experience. To overcome this issue, the Vehicle in the loop (VIL) had been developed, which combines a virtual visual environment with the realistic kinaesthetic feedback of a vehicle while driving on a closed test track. Previous VIL setups used a head-mounted display (HMD) for displaying the virtual environment. This limits the driver’s visual input to the virtual environment and makes it difficult to investigate potential research questions concerning driver interactions with in-vehicle information systems (IVIS). To address this issue, a new version of the VIL has been developed, which uses a projector for displaying the driving simulation on an inset in the windshield and two monitors mounted at the vehicle’s sides. This work presents the first application of the Pro-VIL for investigating IVIS and their impact on driving performance in safety critical situations. For this purpose, we built a setup for comparing the user experience when using either a gesture- or touch-based interaction system, and the observation of driver attention. Results support the overall practicability of the setup, but also revealed new challenges for experimental research design and execution.
