Abstract

The current study examines the impact of drivers’ use of an in-vehicle intersection crossing assist system under demanding cognitive load conditions. The use and adherence to the assist system is examined through intersection crossing driving performance measures. Furthermore, the impact of distraction is examined for younger and older drivers. The results suggest a more conservative approach to the crossing of rural intersections when using the assist system, a finding which was not altered by cognitive load.

The Impact of Distraction on an Intersection Crossing Assist System
