This document describes the research methodologies employed within Work Package 4. WP4 focuses on the development of driver coaching schemes, supporting coaching software/apps, and evaluations of such systems. WP4 consists of various tasks. Some of these are directly related to each other (e.g. concerning coaching of Heavy Goods Vehicle drivers), such that their research methodologies… Continue reading Coaching and methodology
A motorway exit in Eindhoven, The Netherlands, serves as research road section for nudging drivers towards a desired behaviour. The Institute for Automotive Engineering (ika) of RWTH Aachen University visualized this road section in their driving simulator and now evaluates the impact of different variations of possible infrastructure nudging measures on participants’ driving behaviour. These studies… Continue reading The first driving simulator study has now started
One of the objectives in MeBeSafe is the coaching of drivers, in particular heavy goods vehicle (HGV) drivers, on their driving behaviour. Risky driving behaviour can lead to crashes but by coaching drivers on their driving behaviour we can reduce risky driving behaviour, therefore reducing crashes and as a result increase traffic safety. This deliverable… Continue reading Driver profiles and situations
The types of interventions to be developed and implemented in the MeBeSafe project include nudging and coaching. The report presents a new and integrated framework. On the basis of a typification of nudging and coaching respectively, the assumed underlying system of thinking (i.e. System 1 or System 2) and types of intervention strategies, an integrated… Continue reading Integrated framework
