Effects of situational characteristics on drivers' merging into freeway traffic

Baumann, Martin and Steenken, Rike and Kassner, Astrid and Weber, Lars and Lüdtke, Andreas (2010) Effects of situational characteristics on drivers' merging into freeway traffic. In: Human Modelling in Assisted Transportation. Springer-Verlag. HMAT 2010, Italien.

Applying a model-based approach to the design of assistance and automation systems within the automotive domain requires the availability of a valid driver model that can be used to assess the effect of system prototypes on human driving behaviour in simulations. This paper presents two empirical studies conducted within the project IMoST (Integrated Modeling for Safe Transportation) focussing on drivers’ merging into freeway traffic and how the performance of this manoeuvre is influenced by situational characteristics. Additionally, it is briefly sketched how these results have been used to construct a cognitive driver model being able to perform this manoeuvre.
