This is not a how to book. It is a how you can book. It is not even a book in the conventional sense; it is a classroom seminar on advanced driver training. It is a discussion about the driving skills; drivers have the most difficulty with when it comes to car control. It is not a defensive driving manual, although there are not any driving skills available to replace defensive driving skills. It is a compilation of years of experience observing students participating in advanced driver training. Not from the perspective of what they did not know, but from the perspective of what they did not understand about driving because it had never been taught. It is an in depth discussion about how we can improve our driving skills and car control skills. The discussion examines what actually happens just before and during the driving emergency, to the driver and the vehicle. We will talk about controversial driving subjects, candidly and openly. We will discuss why the otherwise excellent driver suddenly "freezes up" when faced with a potentially life threatening driving situation and what we can do to prevent it happening to us. On the pages of this book, you will become intimately familiar with your vehicle tires, steering wheel, Brake and accelerator pedals. You will get to know those body chemicals that can drive our muscles to do phenomenal things or shut us down. You will get to know your eyes, and why their correct use, is critical to driver car control. Skid control is not just about turning the steering wheel in the direction of the skid. Skid control is understanding and thereby anticipating everything there is to know about a skid! The discussions on advanced driving techniques follow a philosophy that has been proven on the driving course. If I simply tell you how to do something and then let you practice until you get it right you may or may not be able to accomplish that action under extreme excitation, fear or duress. If I can find a way to help you understand, WHY, certain skills are essential you will retain that knowledge and find a way to practice it and put it to use. There are no simple single acts of car control skill during the driving emergency. The acts of steering while braking or mastering the techniques of maximum effective braking are easily accomplished in a controlled environment. During the highway driving emergency, they are several steps down the list of what needed to happen to avoid or reduce the damaging consequences of a crash! On the pages of The Complete Driver, we will examine all aspects of advanced driver skill and what we can do to improve our skills, on a daily basis, and why we must.

Traffic And Transport Psychology

Just as our transport systems become more and more important to our economic and social well-being, so they become more and more crowded and more at risk from congestion, disruption, and collapse. Technology and engineering can provide part of the solution, but the complete solution will need to take account of the behaviour of the users of the transport networks. The role of psychologists in this is to understand how people make decisions about the alternative modes of transport and about the alternative routes to their destinations, to understand how novice and other vulnerable users can develop safe and effective behaviours, how competent users can operate within the transport system optimally and within their perceptual and cognitive limitations. The contributions to this volume address these issues of how the use of our transport systems can be improved by taking into account knowledge of the behaviour of the people who use the systems. Topics discussed include driver training and licensing, driver impairment, road user attitudes and behaviour, enforcement and behaviour change, driver support systems, and the psychology of mobility and transport mode choice. This work will be of value not only to psychologists but to all transport professionals interested in the application of psychology to traffic.

As technology improves, so does the sophistication of driving simulators. Meanwhile, as the volume of traffic increases, simulators are being seen as a real addition to the driving trainer’s armory. This book explains the basics of education and training using simulators and their ability to improve safety on our streets. Käppler shows that they can be used for documentation, data acquisition, data analysis, evaluation, and modeling as well as for simple training.

Roadcraft is the official Police Driver's Handbook, approved by the Association of Chief Police Officers, and is used by the police service to train police drivers, but it is useful for any driver wishing to improve their skills and safety to a more advanced level. Roadcraft aims to help people become better drivers by increasing awareness of all factors that affect driving, such as the capability of the driver, characteristics of the vehicle, and road and traffic conditions. This new edition has been prepared in close consultation with a working group of senior police driving instructors and other police and civilian advance driver training experts. It has been updated to reflect recent changes in the legislative framework surrounding driving and emergency response driving and new methodologies in teaching safe driving. It now also incorporates information on automotive engineering advances such as ABS and SatNav devices and their effect on driving. A new chapter has been added to teach drivers the physical and psychological aspects of driving and how to develop mental skills to become a better driver.

This book describes different methods that are relevant to the development and testing of control algorithms for advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and automated driving functions (ADF). These control algorithms need to respond safely, reliably and optimally in varying operating conditions. Also, vehicles have to comply with safety and emission legislation. The text describes how such control algorithms can be developed, tested and verified for use in real-world driving situations. Owing to the complex interaction of vehicles with the environment and different traffic participants, an almost infinite number of possible scenarios and situations that need to be considered may exist. The book explains new methods to address this complexity, with reference to human interaction modelling, various theoretical approaches to the definition of real-world scenarios, and with practically-oriented examples and contributions, to ensure efficient development and testing of ADAS and ADF. Control Strategies for Advanced Driver Assistance Systems and Autonomous Driving Functions is a collection of articles by international experts in the field representing theoretical and application-based points of view. As such, the methods and examples demonstrated in the book will be a valuable source of information for academic and industrial researchers, as well as for automotive companies and suppliers.
