Driver information and assistance systems have emerged as an integral part of modern road vehicles in order to support the driver while driving. They make use of the newest information technologies in order to enhance driver awareness, safety and comfort, and thereby avoiding driver errors and accidents. Driver Adaptation to Information and Assistance Systems brings together recent work by the Marie-Curie Initial Training Network ADAPTATION. The project has studied drivers' behavioural adaptation to these new technologies from an integrative perspective working under a joint conceptual theoretical framework of behavioural adaptation that can be used to generate research hypotheses about how drivers will adapt to information and assistance systems and to derive guidelines for the design and deployment of such systems. The book aims to provide the reader with a better understanding of drivers' adaptation processes over time in response to information and assistance system use at different levels (energetic, cognitive and motivational levels); an appreciation of the impact of specificities of drivers population on technology use and skill acquisition; insights on the effects of system functionality, design and reliability as important system characteristics influencing drivers' adaptation; and recommendations on research methods and appropriate tools to investigate adaptation processes.
