The original concept for the Vision in Vehicle series of international conferences was born from discussions within the Applied Vision Association which led eventually to the first conference being held in 1985. Ten years of progress later and this volume presents the selected and edited proceedings of the Sixth International Conference on Vision in Vehicles (VIV6) which was held at the University of Derby, 13-16 September 1995. The meeting was organised in association with the Applied Vision Association and the Ergonomics Society.
The conference is unique in the eclectic mix of disciplines which are attracted to the meetings and this enables research inssues to be considered in very broad contexts.

Editorial Reviews

Rosamond Gianutsos
...the authors come from a range of specialties including human factors engineering, psychology, and at least one article comes from an optometric source. While some of the papers are narrow in their focus, many address broader themes and will fascinate behavioral optometrists.
