Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) Technology and Distracted Driving

This project will review the literature regarding driver use of Advanced Driver Assistance System or ADAS technologies (Society of Automotive Engineers Level 2 or Partial Automation, specifically) and design a study examining the effects of ADAS technologies on distracted driving behaviors and the occurrence of crashes/near crash events and dangerous driving behaviors, i.e., 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), and, if so, determine whether any increased engagement leads to more crashes/near crash events and/or dangerous driving behaviors (e.g., swerving, hard braking, etc.). The hypothetical study would also observe when, where, and how often drivers engage in distracted driving both with and without ADAS technologies. The objective is to also provide a feasibility assessment for conducting this study.
