In recent decades, major technological advances have allowed a large number of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and In-Vehicle Information Systems (IVIS) to be introduced that intend to improve road and driver safety. With the introduction of ADAS and IVIS, there have also been unintentional potential driver distractions and other safety effects. These effects can be of a short-, medium-or long-term nature. Driving simulator studies and on-road studies offer opportunities to investigate behavioural change as a result of the use of ADAS. In order to design the most suitable approach, it is important to know more about each investigation method, contrasting the methodological approaches with regard to utility, potential research questions, data collection and validity. Moreover, the approaches can also be viewed as complementary for assessing behavioural adaptation effectively and efficiently. This chapter will shed some light on the different methods, pointing out the advantages and disadvantages of realistic driving settings and simulated settings for the investigation of behavioural change.
