Driver Characteristics Based on Driver Behavior
Definition of the Subject
According to the road traffic statistics and analysis information, most accidents can be directly attributed to the driver mistake and violation behavior. In driving behavior research , the driving skill and style can be seen as the two main components of human factors . The deficient driving skill and aggressive driving style may both lead to serious crash risk. Therefore, different kinds of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems based on intelligent technologies are developed by automotive manufacturers to increase driver skill and decrease driver workload, such as Forward Collision Warning System and Adaptive Cruise Control System . The governments also conduct much work on the driver education and regulation to avoid aggressive behaviors. In order to optimize the effects of technical driving assistance and driver normalization, understanding and measuring of driver skill and style have become important research topics. However, because of the...
