Lesson Learned

Using ADAS resulted in "increased occurrence of distracted driving behaviors."
  • L2 systems did not increase distracted driving behaviors
  • ADAS systems reduced the incidence of speeding behavior by about 6 percent
  • L2 systems increased speeding behaviors
  • While the number of incidences was too small to draw any firm conclusions, MFA partial automation systems appeared to increase drowsy driving incidences.
