Abstract

Participants who are blind discriminated vehicle paths and made crossing decisions for hybrid vehicles with and without artificial sounds added. Several artificial sounds matched the performance of tasks observed with vehicles with internal combustion engines. These data, with previous vehicledetection results, indicate that selecting artificial sounds for "quiet" vehicles based only on detection data is problematic.
