Abstract: There have been several studies aiming to develop a realistic driver model in accordance with the increased interest in vehicle safety issues and in computer simulation for a vehicle design. This study is especially considering the human driver's steering process; path planning, feed-forward steering, and preview feedback steering. Important human factors, such as the view angle and the neuromuscular system, are also regarded. The suggested driver model is simulated based on the CarSim vehicle model in a Simulink environment. The simulation results are then compared to the actual vehicle test data and to the driving simulator test data with regard to the four human driver levels. The driver model suggested in this study represents the human steering behaviour and well matches the real vehicle test data.
