Abstract

The aim of this paper is to explore the diversity of psychological aspects affecting drivers' visual behaviours with dashboard controls. Two driving simulator experiments were conducted in order to study these aspects. In the first experiment, drivers' visual behaviours were analyzed while using different manual controls located near the gear stick compared to controls located near the windshield. The second experiment further studied these issues by investigating the moderating effects of speed and cognitive load which were also assumed to affect the visual behaviour of drivers. The results suggest that only a few of the factors that affect the visual behaviour of the driver in a dual-task situation with manual controls are related to the physiological aspects of the human operator. On the whole, the results demonstrate the active role of the driver in evaluating task demands and adapting one's behaviour accordingly in dual-task situations while driving.
