Co-operative driving with speed adaptation functionality has great potential to improve traffic-throughput, traffic-safety, and environmental-impact on heavily used traffic-infrastructures. A driving-simulator study was performed to investigate the driver behaviour with respect to such driver-support systems (Zero-, Advisory-, Intervention-, and Controlling). This paper describes the results of one specific scenario, a cut-in scenario. The results show a small reaction time, which was smaller than the response-time required for stabilizing the manoeuvre. Subjective measures show that the experienced-effort for the Controlling system was the smallest, that the satisfaction for the Controlling system was the highest and that the usefulness of all systems was positive.
