The main aim of this research is to investigate reaction times of licensed subjects in a simulated driving context in order to evaluate the influence of the obstacle predictability level. Reaction times were measured during two different tasks: simple obstacle detection and obstacle identification (and naming). The results show an effect of the stimulus predictability on reaction times in both conditions (a bigger effect is recorded with unpredictable stimulus). Besides, a discrep ancy between detection and identification times depending on the stimulus predictability was observed.
Keywords: Traffic psychology, driving simulation, reaction times, stimulus predictability
