This study investigates the influence of a visualization system on the mode of cognitive control adopted in a navigation task. It relies on a driving simulator experiment. It uses data clustering methods, which help identify three patterns of in-vehicle data corresponding to three different modes of control. The study shows that Augmented Reality HUD supports drivers, since it contributes to avoiding the adoption of a scrambled mode of control. However, it promotes an opportunistic mode of control characterised by a higher but limited anticipation.
