Book Description

28 Feb 2014 1409439844 978-1409439844 New edition
Acceptance of new technology and systems by drivers is an important area of concern to governments, automotive manufacturers and equipment suppliers, especially technology that has significant potential to enhance safety. To be acceptable, new technology must be useful and satisfying to use. If not, drivers will not want to have it, in which case it will never achieve the intended safety benefit. Even if they have the technology, drivers may not use it if it is deemed unacceptable, or may not use it in the manner intended by the designer. At worst, they may seek to disable it. This book brings, into a single edited volume, the accumulating body of work on driver and operator acceptance of new technology. Bringing together contributions from international experts in their field, the editors have shaped a book that covers the theory behind acceptance, how it can be measured and how it can be improved. Case studies are presented that provide data on driver acceptance for new and emerging vehicle technology. Although driver acceptance is the central focus of this book, acceptance of new technology by operators in other domains, and across cultures, is also investigated. Similarly, perspectives are obtained from domains such as human computer interaction, where user acceptance has long been regarded as a key driver of product success.This book comes at a critical time in the history of the modern motor vehicle, as the number of new technologies entering the modern vehicle cockpit rapidly escalates. The goal of this book is to inspire further research and development of new vehicle technology to optimise user acceptance and, in doing so, to maximise its potential to save human lives.

About the Author

Michael. A. Regan is a Professor in Transport and Road Safety (TARS) Research in the School of Aviation at the University of New South Wales, in Sydney, Australia. Before that he held research appointments with the French Institute of Science and Technology for Transport, Development and Networks (IFFSTAR) in Lyon, France, and the Monash University Accident Research Centre in Melbourne, Australia. Mike's current research interests focus on human interaction with advanced driver assistance systems, driver distraction and inattention, use of instrumented vehicles for naturalistic observation of driving behaviour, and flight safety. He sits on the Editorial Boards of five peer-reviewed journals, including Human Factors, is the author of more than 200 publications, including two books, and sits on several expert committees in transport safety. Currently, he is the President of the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society of Australia. Tim Horberry is Associate Professor of Human Factors at the University of Queensland, Australia. He is also a Senior Research Associate at the University of Cambridge, UK, and before that he was at the UK's Transport Research Laboratory. Tim has published his work widely, including four books published either by Ashgate or CRC press: 'The Human Factors of Transport Signs' (2004) and 'Human Factors in the Maritime Domain' (2008), 'Understanding Human Error In Mine Safety' (2009) and 'Human Factors for the Design, Operation and Maintenance of Mining Equipment' (2010). Tim has undertaken many applied human factors research projects in Australia, the UK and Europe for organisations such as the European Union, Australian Research Council and the UK Department for Transport. Currently Tim is leading several projects in the minerals industry that are examining acceptance of new technology for mining vehicles - including collision detection systems or shovel automation.Alan Stevens is Chief Research Scientist and Research Director, Transportation, at the Transport Research Laboratory TRL, in the UK, where he has been working on the application of new technology to transport for 25 years. He is an internationally recognised expert in 'Human-Machine Interaction' (HMI) in the driving environment and was co-author of the 'European Statement of Principles on HMI' through his work within the eSafety initiative, where he co-chairs the HMI Working Group. He was also an active member of the responsible international standards committee, regularly participating in meetings with European, US, Canadian and Japanese colleagues. He was recently appointed to the EU-US Working Group on Driver Distraction following the EU-US High Level Cooperation agreement and continues to be involved in the international IHRA (International Harmonized Research Agenda) group and on the Management Committee of IBEC (International Benefit Evaluation and Costs) group. Alan's consultancy activities focus on providing advice on policy and interoperability issues to Government, developing research programs and carrying out specific technical and human factors studies in Intelligent Transportation Systems. He participates in university teaching at MSc level, supervises PhD students and is Editor in Chief of an international peer-review journal of Intelligent Transport Systems.
