A Study on a Method to Call Drivers’ Attention to Hazard
This paper presents a new warning method for increasing drivers’ sensitivity for recognizing hazardous factors in the driving environment. The method is based on a subliminal effect. The results of many experiments performed with six subjects show that the response time for detecting a flashing mark tended to decrease when a subliminal mark was shown in advance. This paper also proposes a scenario for implementing this method in real vehicles.
