Identification of Human Factors Research Needs - Final Report
This report summarizes the activities and results of a preliminary human factors review for the Intelligent Vehicle Initiative (IVI) program. The objective of the project was to help the U.S. Department of Transportation identify human factors work that needs to be done early in the life cycle of the IVI program to ensure safe and well–engineered vehicles.

This report summarizes the activities and results of a preliminary human factors review for the Intelligent Vehicle Initiative (IVI) program. The objective
of the project was to help the U.S. Department of Transportation identify human factors work that needs to be done early in the life cycle of the IVI
program to ensure safe and well-engineered vehicles. This project was comprised of two major subtasks: Subtask 1 provided for a Preliminary IVI Human
Factors Technology Workshop to draw together the stakeholders in the IVI program to begin to define the technologies and the human factors issues that
need to be considered in developing an IVI. Subtask 2 investigated the preliminary infrastructure and human factors in-vehicle requirements for
alternative configurations of an IVI. The data collected in the Human Factors Technology Workshop in subtask 1 served as a basis and starting point for
the research performed to identify human factors research needs that exist. The following conclusions were developed during the conduct of this project:
(1) human factors research needs for the Generation I IVI focus on the need to integrate and manage the information presented to the driver; (2) no
publicly available human factors research has examined the effects of integrating multiple Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) devices into a vehicle
as envisioned by the IVI; (3) considerable human factors research has been conducted to support the development of individual User Services within the
IVI; (4) a broad range of ITS technologies are available to support the development of a Generation I IVI prototype; and (5) for the Generation II and III
IVI especially, extensive algorithm/software, infrastructure, and specific technologies are needed.
