Development of Human Factors Guidelines for Advanced Traveler Information Systems and Commercial Vehicle Operations: Driver Memory for In-Vehicle Visual and Auditory Messages
DISPLAY FORMATS AND COMMERCIAL VEHICLE OPERATOR (CVO) WORKLOAD
This report is one of a series of reports produced as part of a contract designed to develop precise, detailed human factors design guidelines for Advanced Traveler Information Systems (ATIS) and Commercial Vehicle Operations (CVO). During the analytic phase of the project, research issues were identified and rated by 8 human factors experts along 14 separate criteria. The goal of the experimental phase was to examine the highest rated research issues that can be addressed within the scope of the project. The 14 experiments produced in that phase reflect the results of those ratings.
This study is part of the empirical phase of this ATIS/CVO guidelines development effort and is one of a series of investigations designed to provide supporting rationale for the in–vehicle design guidelines. The research reported in this document investigated the effects of message format and modality on comprehension and retention of in–vehicle messages for younger and older drivers.
