Project Details

Project Description

The aim of this project is to address the following research questions:
1. What ADAS features are most popular with drivers?
2. What proportion of drivers with ADAS use ADAS appropriately and correctly?
3. How, when and where do drivers use or not use the ADAS equipped to their vehicle?
4. What contextual factors influence ADAS use or non-use?
5. Do drivers alter their driving style or behaviour when using ADAS, and if yes, how?
6. Do drivers feel safer when driving an ADAS equipped vehicle?
7. Do specific groups of drivers (i.e., older drivers, learner drivers) respond differently to ADAS?
