Towards a predictive model of driver acceptance of active collision avoidance systems (2018)
Conference Proceeding
Large, D., Banks, V., Burnett, G., & Harvey, C. (2018). Towards a predictive model of driver acceptance of active collision avoidance systems. In Proceedings of 7th Transport Research Arena TRA 2018, April 16 - 19, 2018, Vienna, Austriadoi:10.5281/zenodo.1222174

Drivers’ acceptance of advanced-driver-assistance-systems (ADAS), such as pedestrian alert systems (PAS), is vital if the full benefits are to be realised. However, the adoption and continued use of such technology is not only contingent on the syste... Read More

Understanding the effects of peripheral vision and muscle memory on in-vehicle touchscreen interactions (2018)
Journal Article
Eren, A. L., Burnett, G., Large, D. R., & Harvey, C. (in press). Understanding the effects of peripheral vision and muscle memory on in-vehicle touchscreen interactions. IET Intelligent Transport Systems, doi:10.1049/iet-its.2017.0229. ISSN 1751-956X

It is important to gain a better understanding of how drivers interact with in-vehicle touchscreens to help design interfaces to minimise “eyes off road” time. The study aimed to investigate the relative effects of two interaction mechanisms (periphe... Read More

Exploring the relationship between false alarms and driver acceptance of a pedestrian alert system during simulated driving (2017)
Presentation / Conference
Large, D. R., Harvey, C., Burnett, G., Merenda, C., Leong, S., & Gabbard, J. (2017, October). Exploring the relationship between false alarms and driver acceptance of a pedestrian alert system during simulated driving. Paper presented at The Road Safety and Simulation conference

n-vehicle pedestrian-alert-systems (PASs) can be prone to ‘false positive’ declarations, with the likelihood of false interventions increasing as time-to-collision (TTC) extends. A high number of false alarms can annoy drivers and lead to poor acc... Read More

Driving without wings: the effect of different digital mirror locations on the visual behaviour, performance and opinions of drivers (2016)
Journal Article
(2016). Driving without wings: the effect of different digital mirror locations on the visual behaviour, performance and opinions of drivers. Applied Ergonomics, 55, (138-148). doi:10.1016/j.apergo.2016.02.003. ISSN 0003-6870

Drivers' awareness of the rearward road scene is critical when contemplating or executing lane-change manoeuvres, such as overtaking. Preliminary investigations have speculated on the use of rear-facing cameras to relay images to displays mounted ins... Read More

Extending helicopter operations to meet future integrated transportation needs (2015)
Journal Article
Stanton, N. A., Plant, K. L., Roberts, A. P., Harvey, C., & Thomas, T. G. (2016). Extending helicopter operations to meet future integrated transportation needs. Applied Ergonomics, 53, 364-373. doi:10.1016/j.apergo.2015.07.001

Helicopters have the potential to be an integral part of the future transport system. They offer a means of rapid transit in an overly populated transport environment. However, one of the biggest limitations on rotary wing flight is their inability t... Read More

Investigating performance of command team structures in the NATO problem-approach space (2015)
Journal Article
Stanton, N. A., Rothrock, L., Harvey, C., & Sorensen, L. (2015). Investigating performance of command team structures in the NATO problem-approach space. IEEE Transactions on Human-Machine Systems, 45(6), 702-713. doi:10.1109/THMS.2015.2437993

The purpose of this study was to investigate whether the NATO Problem-Approach Space could be mapped to optimal performance of different team structures. The results show that the five team communication structures (chain, Y, circle, wheel, and all-c... Read More
