Using 3D Sound to Improve the Effectiveness of the Advanced Driver Assistance Systems

Future generation cars will be characterized by a wide range of Information Technology (IT) services providing safety and infotainment. This makes the car an information intensive environment where the visual channel is overloaded, putting the safety of drivers and passengers in jeopardy. We propose the use of a 3D auditory display to provide information from the Advanced Driver Assistance Systems. This reduces the eye-off-road time, exploiting the human capability to associate sounds with positions in space. Preliminary lab tests reveal the suitability of this approach. The system still has to be carefully tuned and personalized to achieve usability and reliability, but we think that it provides a complementary channel that is specially useful in low visibility conditions.
