However, depending on the observations by the traffic and transportation service center of Taiwan, drivers have often misunderstand the diagrammatic guide sign on the the highway and then gotten the wrong way.
First, the research survived the demands of the drivers for the diagrammatic guide sign on the highway. Second, the research collected the related researches, like psychologies for diagram cognition and estimate methods for design standard of traffic sign. Third, the research designed the 20 stimulus for experiment which were base on the other countries’ design standards which include Taiwan, Japan, Korea, USA, UK and Germany and the estimate ways for cognition of the diagrammatic guide sign. Forth, the research sorted the cognition data of the participants who have different driving experiences and summarized the design standards for diagrammatic guide signs on the interchange exit one and two on the highway. “Road semi-simplification” and “Text information placed below the arrow” can make drivers more understand the information from the diagrammatic guide sign in these two interchange types. Hope the design standards could improve the existing diagrammatic guide sign in highway.
