Fundamental Study for Constructing A System to Assist The Left Visual Field of Older Drivers : Effectiveness of The Alternative of The Left Front Side-view Mirror by The Central Visual Field

The purpose of this paper is to establish the basics of the systems that assist visibility of the left visual field for older drivers. The display was located either the left which corresponded to a left side mirror, or within the central effective visual field. Participants performed multiple tasks where tracking task using a steering wheel was a primary task, and judgment of situations using a left or front display was a secondary task. How the display location affected the judgment performance was explored for both young and older adults. We counted the number of the warning during the tracking task and measured the percentage correct reaction to displayed stimulus and reaction sensitivity. We investigated how these measures ware affected by age and display location. Mean warning number during the tracking tasks, the percentage correct recognition of situations and d' was affected age and display location. The central display was found to increase the percentage correct recognitions of situations.
