Abstract

The eye movements of seven European and American drivers were recorded while they drove on a simulator where they were aided by six types of driving assistant information (paper map, arrow, arrow with Japanese and English voice information, Car-navigation with Japanese and English voice information). An analysis of the content of eye movements was performed in order to identify differences in the fixations that related the drivers' view points and acceptability to the types of information. A range of driver behavior was measured, including average number of glances, driving speed and mental workload. Results indicated that the drivers responded the best with appropriate speed, lower workload and the least number of glances while using the arrow with English voice information. The current car-navigation system forced the drivers' attention off the road in order to concentrate on the display because of its complex information.
