To study the influence of driving experience on physiological characteristics of drivers under the stress scene, it carries out the principal component analysis method to select the appropriate physiological indexes to analyze of the physiological data of different driving experience drivers. By means of mathematical statistics, the physiological data of drivers were analyzed and compared, and the physiological characteristics of drivers with different driving experiences were obtained. It shows that drivers with fewer experiences showed great physiological load in various stress scenarios; and experienced drivers due to situational awareness have less physiological fluctuations in the baseline period and the recovery period; experienced drivers show the superiority under stress scenarios which the risk appears slowly, while the risk appears suddenly, the advantage of experienced drivers have lower superiority. The growth rate of skin electric rate and heart rate can reflect the influence of driver’s experience on physiology.
