Abstract

The driver's driving experience is one of the important factors affecting his or her behaviors. Prior studies have noted the effect of driving experiences on drivers' eye-movements when right-turning. However, related studies usually focused on the accident scenarios, for drivers' eye-movements on daily driving when facing right-turn, the effects of drivers' experience remain unknown. Therefore, according to design and apply a set of experiments, this paper focused on the analysis of driver's eye-movements during the daily right-turn task to compare the differences between Experienced and Novice drivers. A total of 10 drivers were invited and be classified into two groups (Experienced and Novice) to participate in the experiments. All of the drivers are driving on the right-hand side of the road, and the steering wheel is on the left side of the vehicle. The aimed data were collected by a set of glasses type eye-tracker and be further classified into four driving vision-based AOI (Areas of Interest). The results of Mann-Whitney U-tests showed that Novice drivers have a disordered line of sight and tend to spend more attention on their right view and switch their line of sight back and forth between the AOIs. Moreover, Experienced drivers more tend to keep their view directly in front of their heads instead of using the peripheral vision. The results of this study may provide guidelines to prevent accidents in Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and offers useful insights for the training of new drivers.
