Car Follow Behavior as Safety Driving Messages
Keywords:Car follow, behavior, safety drive, compliance
AbstractCar following behavior is a function of the response from stimulus affected by the relative distance and velocity. The obedience of a driver toward a brief message to keep the safety distance is identified based on the variant of distance and velocity between the lead vehicle and the following one. The message made as the warning to keep the safety distance is put at the rear part of the lead experimental car equipped with a camera of the android cellphone and ionroad professional application. It aims to explore both distance and velocity and driversâ€™ behavior, at the conditions, before and after the experimental car is equipped with a safety driving message. There is found a significant difference on the variant of distance and velocity between the following car with the lead car, before and after the safety driving message intalled. This finding indicates that the providing of a safety driving message to keep safety distance and velocity affects the driversâ€™ behavior. It also simply states that the message can make drivers compliance to the following cars.
