A Discussion on the Consistency of Driving Behavior across Laboratory and Real Situational Studies

Abstract

This study investigated the degrees of consistencies in driving behavior when operating a real system (real car), a virtual system (high fidelity driving simulator), and a laboratory system (computer driving game). The same tendency of behavioral consistencies was confirmed among the three systems: i.e., the steering operation demonstrated the highest behavioral consistencies, followed by the acceleration and braking operations, respectively. The individuality of driving behavior emerged more in the braking and acceleration operations than in the steering operation. The same tendency for behavioral consistencies of braking, acceleration, and steering operations was confirmed in each of the three systems.
