Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) Technology and Distracted Driving

This project will design a study examining the effects of Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) technologies on distracted driving behaviors and driving performance. The project also will provide a feasibility assessment of the study design by conducting a pilot study with nine participants. The design will assess whether drivers’ use of ADAS technologies increases their likelihood to engage in distracted driving behaviors, such as tuning the radio, talking to passengers, or engaging in hand-held cell phone use, as predicted by behavioral adaptation. If such engagement does increase, the design will determine whether it leads to more crashes/near crash events or dangerous driving behaviors such as swerving or braking hard. The study design would also observe when, where, and how often drivers engage in distracted driving both with and without ADAS technologies.
