This paper reviews a simulation approach to the study of driver decision-making behaviour. Tasks were set up with rewards and penalties applied as performance incentives. Simulation tasks were selected that would fit into A decision context and could be efficiently implemented. Familiar driving situations were chosen to give an interesting, motivating driving scenario and cover a range of decision-making situations. The tasks were programmed to occur randomly and repeatedly in a simulated continuous drive. Expected value theory was used both to set up task conditions and as a means for data analysis and interpretation. Both performance and decision-making behaviour were measured. Decision-making behaviour was consistent with an expected value decision-making model interpretation. /Author/TRRL/
