Abstract: This paper presents a driver assistance system of lane change manoeuvre on highway. The assistance system is designed based on a reference driver model which employs common on-board vehicle sensing signals and determines the initiation timing and the magnitude of longitudinal and lateral accelerations. The assistance system is designed to be able to accelerate automatically in longitudinal direction and provide a beep sound to cue the initiation timing of steering manoeuvre by considering the human reaction time. The feasibility of the proposed assistance system is tested on a Driving Simulator (DS). The experimental scenarios are indicated in detail and the obtained results are statistically analysed from the individual and overall aspects of the conducted experiments.
