There is a visual blind spot when a driver tries to change his direction to right. If the driver ignores the blind spot, the vehicle accident may be occurred. Therefore, many drivers install sensor devices which can help them to know the blind spots on the right of the road. The paper conducted the online questionnaire to acquire the degree of driver’s subjective acceptance of for different external tips. And later a simulation experiment was conducted to compare the performances of three different modes of human-computer interaction for the auxiliary devices during the turning right and changes of lane process, including the sound tips, flash tips and vibration tips. Nine non-professional drivers aged between 21 and 24 with one to five years of driving age conducted the experiments. The times of action and response time were recorded and analyzed. The result shows that in the three kinds of tips in the sound tips is more effective.
