Special Issue "Driver Behavior Safety Research in Road Transportation"
A special issue of Safety (ISSN 2313-576X).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (20 December 2020).
It is my great pleasure to serve as the Guest Editor for the Special Issue “Driver Behaviour and Safety” to be published in Safety.
Road Transport has become an increasingly safe mode of travel in recent times, but some Mobility and Safety challenges remain outstanding. Many of these safety challenges involve human factors and driver behaviour – particularly when considering driver interaction with new vehicle information systems, usability/user-acceptance and user experience. Such issues are likely to become even more prevalent in the future due to the rapid global move towards vehicle automation. Therefore, this special issue offers readers a look at some of key emerging issues within transport safety and driver behaviour and how human factors challenges associated with progress in these domains are being overcome. Key topics will include;
o Human Machine Interaction
o Transition of Control
o Driver state
o Driver workload and task demand
o Interaction of (partly) automated vehicles with vulnerable road users
o Human factors in mixed traffic conditions
o Older drivers / novice drivers
o Naturalistic Driving studies
