Abstract

The rapid developing intelligent transport system tries to improve the relationship between human, vehicle and road so as to improve the safety, efficiency and comfort of traditional transportation system via the application of computer, sensing and electric technology. When the drivers are trying to change lanes, the accident occurred because of the blind spot while driving. The lane changing information provider similar to the collision warning system is a kind of system to improve traffic safety while changing lanes. It provides the distance between you and the vehicle in the another lane, arrival time of that vehicle and its speed, in this study we try to find out the effect of the above system to the vehicle drivers. We use the fix based driving simulator in our university as the tool to study the lane change driving performance with the help of lane change information provider. The preliminary result shows that the distance information is clear to the test driver and it will cause a safer driving performance than the others.
