PDF: Analyzing high decibel honking effect on driving behavior using VR and bio-sensors

Abstract

Honking in traffic is an auditory warning to indicate: driver’s actions, alert pedestrians and to convey an emergency situation requiring right of way. Though studies have shown the importance of honking in maintaining traffic flow, there have been cases where irrational use leads to an increase in stress/irritation with effects on driver decision making. Most drivers are unaware of the adverse health effects of high decibel honking. In this report, we looked at the effects of honking on driving behavior in a lab-developed VR driving simulator and anxiety/stress as indicated by changes in skin conductance/pulse rate measured using sensors.
