Abstract : A collision avoidance manoeuvre -- in which drives were required to successfully steer around a suddenly appearing obstruction in the vehicle's path -- was investigated. Both an instrumented automobile and a matching fixed base, computer generated image simulator were employed. Driver performance and the simulator's validity in representing an extreme lateral manoeuvre are examined. (Author)
