Abstract:

This report argues that in order to develop reliable intelligent interfaces in motor cars, a driver model should be developed which reflects human information processing mechanisms and, more specifically, mechanisms of skill acquisition, namely involuntary priming and voluntary preparation. On this basis three alternative models of skill acquisition are proposed that differ with respect to the effects of voluntary control at the perceptual and response level of information processing. Subjects carried out two-choice reactions in rapid succession. The most important experimental manipulations were 1 whether the first choice reaction predicted the second and 2 the degree of transfer of training to conditions where predictivity changed. In addition, stimulus presentation was for some subjects always visual and the second was auditory. EMK
