Human Factors Study on the Use and Effectiveness of Innovative Safety Messages on Dynamic Message Signs

The objectives of the proposed project can be summarized as follows: (1) design a driving simulator experiment to test driver's behavior in response to different safety messages and invite enough subjects across all age groups to validate results; (2) identify several human factors to be studied and evaluate the effectiveness of innovative safety messages; (3) develop a statistical model that will accurately analyze the impacts of the safety messages on driver behavior; and (4) determine criteria to be incorporated into Florida Department of Transportation's (FDOT's) safety message approval process (Topic Number 000-750-015).
