The Naturalistic Driver Model : Development, Integration, and Verification of Lane Change Maneuver, Driver Emergency and Impairment Modules

This report presents a literature review on driver distraction, impairment and emergency repose that supports the development of the Naturalistic Driver Model. The need for a driver model that integrates a wider range of natural driver activities is important for both the traffic engineering and human factors communities. The PADRIC naturalistic driver model is further developed by increasing the scope of simulation capabilities to lane-change maneuvers and emergency or impaired driving. Determining the structure and pattern of driving activities under emergency or impaired conditions is central to the extension of the naturalistic driver model.
