Abstract

This study aims to identify preliminary acceptance and usability goals of a Driver State Monitoring (DSM) system. To demonstrate willingness within a user group to employ DSM technology for the task it is designed to support, the acceptance of the system was investigated using Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology. Furthermore, a list of ten usability goals was composed and ranked by participants. In total, 95 responses were recorded. The sample consisted of participants of mixed gender and age (M = 34.81, SD = 9.32 years). The measurement and structure model of acceptance was appraised using Structural Equation Modelling. Overall, the model accounted for 22% of the variance in intention to use DSM technology. It was found that the Social Influence factor is the only significant predictor of Behaviour Intention to use a DSM system. To conclude, several implications for researchers and developers of DSM systems are suggested.
