Abstract:In the Netherlands, in-vehicle information systems (IVIS) are more and more incorporated in the traffic environment. Although collection of traffic-related data is quite well organized, the way this data is translated into information and presented to the driver is not well determined yet. This study aimed to advise about the appropriate amount of information presented within in-vehicle messages, to make drivers comply correctly with the messages, but without reducing road safety. Different in-vehicle messages were presented during the experiment in a driving simulator. Two levels of scenario type (‘Traffic jam’ and ‘Alternative destination’) and three levels of message complexity (low, intermediate, and high information quantity) were varied in a within-subjects design. Preference, compliance behaviour, eye movements and subjective mental workload were measured during the experiment. Participants complied the least with the low information quantity message, while the message with high information quantity was watched the longest. Scores of subjective workload increased with more information quantity. The message with intermediate information quantity resulted in the best option during this study. This study recommends that at least advice for behaviour and a reason for presentation of the message should be present in in-vehicle messages. Further extensions are not recommended.
