The key objective of the project is to describe the process and degree of a person’s (driver’s) adaptation to onboard driver assistance systems, particularly in terms of traffic safety, i.e. what positive, or negative, effects such systems may have on traffic safety. The aim is to address the problem from both the individual (i.e. the driver’s) and the social perspective (i.e. traffic safety and public health as an issue for the entire society).
In a broader context, the ambition is to develop resources for prevention and the training and education of drivers which should improve the acceptance of these systems and understanding of their functions and limitations, as well as preventing drivers from overestimating the capacities of such technologies.
