Exponent Principal Scientist Dr. David Krauss, along with contributing authors James Jay Todd, Abtine Tavassoli, David Cades, and Robyn Kim, recently published "Forensic Aspects of Driver Perception and Response." The Fourth Edition contains invaluable new information about driver perception and response and related human factors and design issues.
The book contains the most current information available in the area of driver perception and perception-response time. All existing chapters have been expanded, providing in-depth coverage of areas such as light reflecting surfaces, visibility enhancing materials, driver age, gender and experience, fatigue, speed perception and vehicle size, vehicle lighting and marking, glare, roadway design and the driver, work zones, railroad grade crossings, roadway signage, weather and driving and driver distraction. Additionally, a new chapter has been added covering the proliferation of in-vehicle technology and its relationship to the driver.
If you work with driver perception and response cases in any capacity, this book is an invaluable addition to your reference library.
