This study aims to explore the effects of human panic factor on drivers' driving behavior. Most of the car following models focus on idealistic situations aiming for perfection, traffic psychology, however, suggests that emotions do play a significant role in drivers' behavior which in result effect their driving and decision making. Therefore, it is necessary to incorporate human factors in car following models for better realistic results in driving situations where external task demand…

Toward an Intelligent Driving Behavior Adjustment Based on Legal Personalized Policies Within the Context of Connected Vehicles
An intelligent approach that promotes the implementation of personalized road policies based on driving behaviors, driving performance, and the ongoing road traffic situation is proposed, which ultimately aim to increase drivers’ awareness by encouraging behavioral self-regulation.


Driver Stress and Performance on a Driving Simulator
An experimental study assessed multiple dimensions of vulnerability to driver stress by a questionnaire that was validated in previous field studies and related those dimensions to performance on a driving simulator, results were broadly consistent with prediction.

A Formal Approach for Modeling and Simulation of Human Car-Following Behavior
This model reduces the root mean square error of the following vehicle position using the traces obtained from human drives through different driving scenarios, and shows that the rms error in IDM and FVDM is reduced by up to 48.8% and 7.41%, respectively.
Car-Following Models Based on Driving Strategies
The models introduced in this chapter are derived from assumptions about real driving behavior such as keeping a “safe distance” from the leading vehicle, driving at a desired speed, or preferring
