Abstract

The article presents the data of experimental study of the eye-movements during the perception of dangerous driving among drivers of different age and social groups. Bass-Darky questionnaire and Eye-Tracking were used. The following parameters were investigated: duration of fixations, their number, amplitude of saccades and the proportion of implicit and explicit fixations during the perception videos with dangerous and non-dangerous driving. Implicit fixations are fast and more frequent at the time of initial stimulus processing and correspond to the process of implicit attention. Their average duration ranges from 120 to 250 ms. Explicit fixations correspond to the process of explicit attention, their duration is 300—450 ms; the level of aggressiveness, diagnosed using the Bass-Darky questionnaire. The study involved 45 drivers with driving experience from six months to 31 years (22 men, 23 women, aged from 20 to 62 years), 12 professional and 33 non-professional. Differences were found in the parameters of eye movements in groups of professional drivers and non-professional; men and women in the perception of videos showing dangerous and non-dangerous driving
