Train cab

UK: Glasgow Caledonian University researcher Martin Ward is seeking British train drivers to participate in survey of their use of driver advisory systems.

The survey asks drivers what influences them to follow the advice provided by DAS, and what they perceive as the benefits or risks.

‘Previous research has focused on the systems’ benefits, but ignored the individual user benefits or risks’, Ward explained. ‘To gain the maximum advantages from DAS, it’s important to get as many users as possible using DAS as much of the time. This research is aimed at understanding why someone does or doesn’t follow DAS, what would encourage them to follow it more, and what the benefits are to them as a driver.’

The survey is open until July 23 at
