Automated Feedback to Foster Safe Driving - Phase 2

This project will evaluate the effect of accelerator pedal feedback to reduce speeding over the posted speed limit. In previous research, a database linking global positioning system (GPS) coordinates with speed limits was created and validated. The current research effort will link the speed limit database with a mechanical device that will introduce feedback to the accelerator pedal when drivers exceed speed limits. The feedback can be overridden by pressing harder on the accelerator pedal. In addition to measuring the effect of the technology on speeding, the researchers will also measure driver acceptance of and mental workload experienced from the system.
