Abstract

Objective: Vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communication has become one of the most active fields of research recently. The implementation of the wireless connected vehicles has widely extended the transmission range of warning messages to inform drivers of hazards ahead. The present study addressed the human component with mathematical modeling of the human reaction time to warning messages in the connected vehicle systems (CVSs) with different confidence intervals (CIs). Methods: In the present study, human performance in warning responses is modeled by extending an existing mathematical model of human performance with the complexity level of tasks. The modeling of human performance with different levels of uncertainty is integrated to propose the warning message notification model in the CVS settings. The warning message notification models were proposed to model the CVSs parameters including maximum available message notification delay, the maximum available machine processing time, the minimum acceptable message notification range, and the designed message display delay. Results: The optimal designs of CVSs parameters were presented in general and for specific conditions by applying the modeling of human performance with different CIs (i.e., 95% and 99% CI) and the warning message notification model with human in the loop. A software interface with the message notification model implemented was presented to discuss the practical benefits of the current work in the design of CVSs.
