Abstract: This article gives an overview on the main results of driving behaviour observations carried out with drivers using different IVT systems. This work was part of the FP7 project INTERACTION (understanding driver interactions with in-vehicle technologies) in which the use of mature and wide spread IVT systems, namely cruise control, speed limiter, navigation system and mobile phone was investigated. The aim of the project was to gather more information about when, where and under which conditions these systems are used. The driving behaviour observations with the help of the 'Wiener Fahrprobe' gave additional information on how drivers are handling with the systems and how the use of the systems is influencing the driving behaviour. This article will concentrate on the observations regarding the handling with the systems and the interaction processes with other road users while using the systems.
