Merging sections are challenging for drivers of heavy goods vehicles. Visual support for merging was evaluated in a simulator. Experiment 1 tested HMIs that provided participants (n = 5) driving on the on-ramp with a top view or various forms of speed advice for accelerating behind or in front of a truck platoon on the freeway. Experiment 2 tested HMIs that provided drivers (n = 18) on the acceleration lane with a top view complemented with speed and gap advice for finding a gap to merge in. Experiment 1 showed that speed advice yielded less unnecessary braking compared to unsupported driving. In Experiment 2, speed advice yielded low satisfaction ratings. Our results highlight the potential of visual support and stress the importance of not visually overloading the driver.
