Testing of lane departure warning (LDW) systems in a fixed-base driving simulator found driver corrective actions were boosted by LDW presence, with steering wheel vibration warnings stimulating greater response than directional audio warnings.

An evaluation of alternative LDW designs using an University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute (UMTRI) driving simulator.


Background (Show)

Lesson Learned

Corrective responses appear to be generally boosted by LDW presence, with the wheel-vibration LDW resulting in somewhat greater response than a directional audio LDW.
