T-1.1 SUPERBOWL SHUFFLE SUPERBOWL SHUFFLE
T-1.2 Vision and Mental Awareness Seeing/Searching Techniques Mental Awareness and Perception In-car Habits
T-1.3 Driving is Unique Mental Task Consider this… Driving is one of a very few tasks that the person can not see where they are located… If a driver tries to figure out where they are on the roadway… they will be someplace different by the time they can make a speed or position adjustment. Therefore, a driver can not drive in the present, so he/she needs to use information from the future or past to operate the vehicle. The novice driver needs to develop a unique set of visual and mental awareness skills in order to make reduced-risk driving decisions develop into safe performance habits.
T-1.4 Driving is Unique Mental Task Stored knowledge provides a picture in your mind of what is likely to happen before it actually happens The sooner a traffic element is identified, the more time the mind has to come up w/ an accurate picture of what to expect. More stored knowledge = faster and more accurate predictions ?v=FcRgkrdWt3o&feature=rela ted ?v=FcRgkrdWt3o&feature=rela ted
T-1.5 Brain Gains Information from: Focus Vision Central Vision (UFOV) Peripheral Vision Focus Vision (Focal) Ability to focus on letters, numbers, etc. Independent of field of view Central Vision Relates vehicle position to travel path Dependent on field of view Peripheral Vision Motion and Color Changes Dependent on field of view
T-1.6 Visual Skill Development Look Where to Look Look How to Look Look What to Look for
T-1.7 Mental and Perceptual Awareness Input-Process-Output (S)IPDE Process Space Judgement Based on past experience and knowledge base and knowledge base
T-1.8 IPDE PROCESS Will help you reduce risk by making wise decisions and executing safe driving actions I – Identify: smith system, line of sight, path of travel, target area, range, 4-6 second range. P – Predict: HOW? WHAT? D – Decide: change speeds, dir., communicate, minimize/separate a hazard, compromise space E – Execute: control speed, steer, communicate, etc.
T-1.9 Target area range sec range 4-6 sec. range
T-1.10 Smith System (identify) develop good seeing habits 1. AIM HIGH in steering sec into target What are some restrictions that close zones? 2. Keep eyes MOVING Near/far, side/side, mirrors SCANNING 3. Get the BIG picture 4. Make sure others see you 5. Leave yourself an “OUT”
T-1.11 ZONE CONTROL SYSTEM 1. See a zone change 2. Check other zones 3. Create time and space by getting the best speed control, lane pos. and communication
T-1.12 FRONT ZONE RIGHT FRONT ZONE Right rear zone REAR ZONE LEFT REAR ZONE LEFT FRONT ZONE
T-1.13 Perception Being Perceptive is a Learned Process Perceiving Problems Takes Time Managing Visual Inputs Is Critical Managing Time and Space is Primary Decision Tool
T-1.14 Language Example Saville, Der Dago Tousin busis inaro Nocho, Demis troux Summit cowsin Summit doux
T-1.15 Language Example Aoccdrnig to a rscheearch at an Elingsh Uinervtisy, it deosn't mttaer in waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, the olny iprmoetnt tihng is taht frist and lsat ltteer is at the rghit pclae. The rset can be a toatl mses and you can sitll raed it wouthit porbelm. Tihs is bcuseae we do not raed ervey lteter by it slef but the wrod as a wlohe. DeciatsrDisaster Disaster
T-1.16 Language of Driving
T-1.17 YIELD Language of Driving STOP NOPASSINGZONE ONE WAY
T-1.18 Read This! Buckle Up For For Safety
T-1.19 Read This! What did it say? Did you see... Buckle Up For For Safety Why?
T-1.20 Focal Vision at Work Visual Memory Imprint DOTS FOLLOW YOUR FOCAL VISION.. TRY STARING AT CENTER BOX ONLY to stop movement
T-1.21 Useful Field of View
T-1.22 Mental Awareness
Your Brain Sees? 95 INTERSTATE.
Your Brain Sees?.
T-1.25 Mental Awareness If I refer to former President Clinton… What does your mental awareness tell you about this photograph ?
T-1.26 What Did You See? Do you see a Horse and Rider ?
T-1.27 Visual Imagery Fools Brain Perception COUNT THE LEGS
T-1.28 Visual Imagery Fools Brain Perception What Do You See? … The Old Woman or.. The Old Woman or.. The Young Girl The Young Girl
T-1.30 Vision and Mental Awareness Central Space Area True Blind Spot Sightline Limitations
T-1.31 Vision and Mental Awareness Rear and Side View Mirrors Mirror Blind Spot Sightline Limitations
T-1.32 Blindzone-Glare Elimination (BGE) Mirror Method Move Side View Mirrors Move Side Mirrors 15 degrees to outside Head against left side window Head in center of car
T-1.33 BGE Mirror Settings
