4th Berlin Symposium for Driver Modeling

Driver modeling in science and industry – 13 – 14th June 2013, Berlin.

fachtagung_logoFor modern automobile development driver models have been an indispensable tool for quite some time. The demand for more comprehensive models, which can simulate typical human characteristics increases. Especially in driver assistance system development, questions such as how human-like driver models should really be, have been proposed and reexamined. In recent years, we have observed the increased demand of modeling human behavior in interactive embedded systems. Furthermore traffic simulations raise more interests in microscopic modeling approaches for the description of individual agents in complex traffic situations.

Another field of application for driver models is research and development for traffic safety as well as traffic planning. In the modeling process itself, the focus on driver behavior seems to shift to human-human and human-machine cooperation. The range of modeling topics, such as the physicality of the driver, motoric skills, cognitive processes, strategies, planning and behavior or tasks and errors are extended to global and local targets for the modeling of cooperation and conflict.
