In Ontario, nearly 10,000 incidents involving vehicles and wildlife occur each year. Although the majority do not result in death for people in the car, the expenditures are substantial. Such collisions are predicted to cost $800 million in Canada each year. Sensors incorporated within automotive safety systems could help alert drivers to impending collisions with wildlife, cars, and other road dangers. Some threats, such as a car in the driver's blind area, can already be detected by these systems. Identifying unforeseen risks in dynamic road scenarios, on the other hand, is a more difficult challenge.

According to new research from UTM cognitive psychologists, simple safety alarms can perform just as effectively as more complex systems prone to errors. The new study is highly relevant for Vehicle Safety System Market as it investigates how car safety notifications can be made more effective.
To conclude, researchers used dashcam footage from real-life driving incidents that they found on YouTube. They investigated three different attentional signals that warned research participant 'drivers' of an approaching hazard. Their goal was to evaluate how they affected their response time, using fundamental cognitive psychology research methodologies.

The team discovered that a driver's attention was drawn directly towards dangers by one of the warnings. This was referred to as a valid spatiotemporal cue. Further, it precisely superimposed a graphic of increasing red rings around the hazard—as if the safety system had correctly identified the hazard in the proper location at the exact time. The response time of the driver was around 60 milliseconds faster. This can be considered a successful trial.

Indeed, the quick warnings are insufficient to employ breaks of a vehicle. However, it may be two or three meters if one is going on the highway." That is insufficient to brake fully, but it may be sufficient to swerve and avoid a crash.

On the other hand, it had the opposite impact when a hazard was incorrectly detected. A spatiotemporal invalid cue was also given to drivers as a warning. The expanding red rings were placed around another object in the scene wrongly. The driver's attention was drawn away from the hazard, resulting in a 60-millisecond delay in response time.

This implies that, while complex engineering solutions can be helpful, basic signals can also help. Simply having the information in real-time might be beneficial.
