The Naturalistic Driver Model: A Review of Distraction, Impairment and Emergency Factors

This report presents a review of the literature on driver distraction, driver impairment and emergency response in support of the development of the Naturalistic Driver Model. The objectives are threefold: 1) prepare an extensive literature review identifying the extent that driver distraction and impairment affects reaction time, lateral and longitudinal vehicle control, and other variables; 2) review emergency responses in a variety of situations and determine the implications for lane change, car following, and merging; and, 3) synthesize the results on reaction time, creating a range values for incorporation into a driver model.
