K. Li, S. Saudrais, L. Desire, B. Barbedette, C. MorelConference room

  • The mental workload of cyclists in an immersive virtual reality environment was studied.
  • Participants used a bicycle simulator to ride across different road layouts.
  • Mental workload assessment relied on a subjective scale, the performance to a secondary task and eye-tracking measures.
  • Most participants performed differently on the different road layouts.
  • The bicycle simulator is a promising tool for assessing road layouts.
