... there are no simple 'right' answers for most web design questions (at least not for the important ones). What works is good, integrated design that fills a need--carefully thought out, well executed, and tested.

Public government web sites offer a promise of quick, convenient, and easy access to information and services. This has led many governments to push for an unprecedented move of publications, forms, and other information and services to this medium. There are many design challenges in developing public government web sites. In this SIG we aim to identify these challenges and discuss lessons learned. We will concentrate in two areas: supporting safety and communities, and user-centered design. In our discussion, we plan to touch on issues such as trust, information transparency, information relevance, community support, user-centered design techniques, stakeholders, legal requirements, and universal access. We expect attendees will be either involved in the design of government web sites or interested in a discussion of these issues. The SIG's activities will be organized to maximize input from all attendees.

(1995): Effects of Partial and Total Sleep Deprivation on Driving Performance. In: Proceedings of the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society 39th Annual Meeting 1995. p. 935.
Official statistics from the Fatal Accident Reporting System indicate a trend toward an increase in fatigue-related accidents over the past five years. In addition, it is widely believed by researchers that the official statistics grossly underestimate the role of fatigue in accidents. This collaborative study was conducted to precisely define performance decrements that drivers experience under varying levels of partial and total sleep deprivation. A 4 (rested, partial, 36-hour, and 60-hour sleep deprivation) by 2 (gender) mixed factors design with repeated measures of driving performance in a high-fidelity driving simulator was used to define these performance decrements. Analyses revealed several critical driving performance measures that were significantly affected by sleep deprivation. Sleep deprivation effects were observed for speed, lateral placement variance, steering variance, lane excursions, and number of crashes, with dramatic deterioration of performance accompanying increasing levels of sleep deprivation. Regression analyses were conducted on the driving performance data to determine behavioral predictors of crashes. Lateral placement variance accounted for 86% of the variance in the number of crashes, demonstrating important safety implications and issues related to the development of both roadway and in-vehicle countermeasures. Development of countermeasures to detect drowsiness can help prevent crashes and enhance the safety of all road users. Future analyses of the data will include the application of neural nets to predict fatigue-related crashes.

Kloeppel, Esther, Peters, Robert D., James, Christina, Fox, Jean E. and Alicandri, Elizabeth (1994): Comparison of Older and Younger Driver Responses to Emergency Driving Events. In: Proceedings of the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society 38th Annual Meeting 1994. p. 986.
This study investigated the responses of older and younger drivers during performance of emergency maneuvers in an interactive driving simulator. Thirty-six drivers, equally distributed among three age groups (20-29; 35-44; 65-74) participated in the 20 mile simulated drive, during which they encountered four emergency events. Two baseline segments were also collected. The emergency events were situations where other vehicles performed unexpected maneuvers: pulling out in front of the subject's car from a side street, and turning left in front of the subject's car at an intersection. Information on driver performance variables, overall avoidance, and emergency avoidance response time was collected. Older drivers were not different from younger or middle-aged drivers in avoidance response time, speed, deviation from the speed limit, brake pedal force, and overall avoidance. Age differences were found in lateral placement at intersections. Older drivers drove further to the right of the lane center than younger and middle-aged drivers. It is believed that this is a result of a general conservatism of older drivers. This research narrows the scope of investigations into intersection accidents. Older drivers did not exhibit increased avoidance reaction times. In this experiment, subjects were not performing turning maneuvers. Future research should be directed, when possible, toward investigating driver behavior when making turning maneuvers across traffic.
