Eco-Driving: From Strategies to Interfaces (Hardback)

Despatched in 2 business days.


Eco-driving has the potential to save fuel and reduce emissions without having to make any changes to vehicles or road infrastructure. This book provides an in-depth understanding of the contemporary issues in the human factors aspects of eco-driving strategies and interfaces and the effects on driver behaviour. A review of the literature concerning design, behaviour, and energy use led to an exploration of Ecological Interface Design, and the Skills, Rules, and Knowledge (SRK) taxonomy of human behaviour, particularly with regard to haptic information presented through the accelerator pedal. This book explains that eco-driving can be performed by anyone in control of a vehicle.

He was recently awarded his Engineering Doctorate by the same university, having been based in the Transportation Research Group, Faculty of Engineering and the Environment. He has published over 16 articles, across a variety of topics, including eco-driving and the effect of in-vehicle information on driving behaviour and fuel use, the effect of multi-sensory information on responding, the general utility of Ecological Interface Design, the link between expertise development and verbal reporting, the use of non-intrusive verbal reporting for information acquisition, and the ability of Cognitive Work Analysis, and its various components, to support decision making and system design in a variety of domains, from rail transport to system requirements specification. Professor Neville A. Stanton, PhD, DSc, is a chartered psychologist, chartered ergonomist and chartered engineer. He holds the Chair in Human Factors Engineering in the Faculty of Engineering and the Environment at the University of Southampton in the United Kingdom. He has degrees in Occupational Psychology, Applied Psychology and Human Factors Engineering and has worked at the Universities of Aston, Brunel, Cornell and MIT. His research interests include modelling, predicting, analysing and evaluating human performance in systems as well as designing the interfaces and interaction between humans and technology. Professor Stanton has worked on design of automobiles, aircraft, ships and control rooms over the past 30 years, on a variety of automation projects. He has published 35 books and over 280 journal papers on Ergonomics and Human Factors. In 1998, he was presented with the Institution of Electrical Engineers Divisional Premium Award for research into System Safety. The Institute of Ergonomics and Human Factors in the United Kingdom awarded him The Otto Edholm Medal in 2001, The President's Medal in 2008 and The Sir Frederic Bartlett Medal in 2012 were awarded for his contributions to basic and applied ergonomics research. The Royal Aeronautical Society awarded him and his colleagues the Hodgson Prize in 2006 for research on design-induced, flight-deck, error published in The Aeronautical Journal. The University of Southampton awarded him a Doctor of Science in 2014 for his sustained contribution to the development and validation of Human Factors methods.
