Title Increasing Truck Driver's Awareness: Use of In-Vehicle 3D Sounds
Date Posted 5/29/2013
Description The Transportation Research Board (TRB) has published findings from a recent study looking to understand how the use of in-vehicle 3D sounds could improve the situational awareness of commercial truck drivers. For this study, researchers developed a test environment with simulated sounds for common road user (e.g., cars, bicyclist, pedestrian, and motorcycle) that commercial truck drivers would experience on a daily basis. Results from the study showed benefits in using the in-vehicle 3D sounds and highlight potential research topics to move this concept towards real-world implementation.
