Driving Simulator Studies - Opportunities to Elicit Important Knowledge from Experienced Truck Drivers
Paper in proceedings, 2017
Twelve experienced truck drivers participated in a driving simulator study with the overall aim to develop further knowledge on how driving postures are influenced by cab design features (e.g. head-up display and camera monitoring system (CMS). Objective data was collected on drivers' posture and subjective data on their experience of driving as well as thoughts on the new designs. The subjective data and the experience of the truck drivers brought additional value to the simulator studies in terms the pros and cons of different designs but also of suggestions how to improve the realism of the simulator; and reflections on drivers' behaviour in situations that did not exist in the simulator.
