For many old drivers, ACC adaptive cruise or auxiliary driving system is the primary reference configuration for them to buy a car. Because when you run at high speed, you can find out how practical this configuration is. However, in reality, many drivers rely too much on the auxiliary driving system and even use it as automatic driving. As a result, some accidents can be avoided.A few days ago, a new study from the American Highway Safety Insurance Association (IIHS) and the Massachusetts Institute of technology agelab showed that.
When drivers have trust in the driving aid system, they use electronics more frequently, causing their hands to leave the steering wheel.
In the test, 20 volunteers were asked to use advanced driving aids for a month, and the researchers recorded how often they moved their hands off the steering wheel or their attention off the road.
The first group of 10 people driving range rover evoque is equipped with ACC adaptive cruise, the second group of 10 people drive Volvo S90, equipped with pilot assist driving system, with ACC adaptive mixing and lane keeping functions.
The test results showed that at the beginning, there was no difference in the frequency of signs of detachment among volunteer drivers, whether they were driving manually, using ACC or using pilot assist.
But after a month, the frequency began to increase significantly, and they began to take their hands off the steering wheel and look away.
Ian Reagan, a senior research scientist at IIHS, said drivers were more than twice as likely to have their hands off the steering wheel one month after using the driving aid system than at the beginning of the study.
Moreover, compared with manual driving, they are more than 12 times more likely to leave the steering wheel with their hands after they are used to it.
In addition, Tesla has been exposed many times before, because the driver excessively relied on the automatic auxiliary driving function, and caused accidents when driving at high speed. This also shows that, before the automatic driving technology is fully mature, there is a high risk of over reliance.
