Research on visual physiological characteristics via virtual driving platform

The transportation system is synthesized by people, vehicles, roads, and environment, and people factor is initiative and plays a key role in the intermediate link between complex environment and vehicles. Virtual driving test is designed to research driver’s dynamic visual characteristics under different road conditions. This article applies faceLAB 5.0 eye tracker, Blue Tiger virtual driving device, and others to record eye movement changes of a driver in different road conditions, collect driver’s eye movement data, and analyze eye movement variation. Also, by comparing, checking, and disciplinary analyzing the measured data in different driving phases, this article conducts an analysis of eye movement changes of a driver while driving. In virtual driving test, drivers have low blinking frequency and long blinking duration in started section. When the section is complicated, drivers have increasing blinking frequency but shorter blinking duration and disperse visual fixation points. In decelerating section, drivers slow down and stop the vehicle. The research results provide the basis for safe driving, when date is more than a variable value, which can determine the driver unsafe driving. The research also has an important and practical role in the research of the driver’s behavior process in multi-source information environment.
