Abstract

Driving requires a combination of open-loop and closed-loop control. The open-loop control is affected by the quality of visual input, and therefore constrained during driving at night. This study investigated the effects of a Visual Enhancement System during simulated night driving conditions. It was hypothesised that the VES would improve the driver’s control, hence the quality of driving. 40 Ss drove about 120 km on a simulated Swedish road with and without a VES. At the time of writing, the experiments have just finished. Data analysis will focus on derived measures that correspond to the driver’s degree of control.
