Abstract

The paper presents the methodology and results from focus group interviews, conducted within the framework of the INTERACTION project. The main aim was to understand why, when, where and how drivers interact with four different IVT, gathering information to understand more about the moments and modalities the drivers choose to interact with IVT. The focus group sessions were conducted in five different European countries and each focus group session promoted the discussion on two IVT: cruise control and speed limiter, or nomadic navigation system and mobile phone. Results express the way drivers think about the advantages and disadvantages of the systems, the moments they select to use them in a proper or unattended way, and even reports of dangerous situations while interacting with them. Discussion allows a reflection on the factors that influence drivers to use the systems and will be used for further research within the INTERACTION project.
