Abstract

The aim of the DREAM project was to find an approach by which to identify a driver and his normal driving behaviour. A comparison of current behaviour with the normal pattern could then identify safety-relevant levels of driver stress, fatigue, alcohol or drug consumption. This aim requires the development not only of reliable physiological or psychological methods to determine driver performance, but also of comfortable in-car measurement techniques derived directly from the driver's actions in controlling the vehicle. These actions include steering strategies, gas pedal position, time constants of driver movements, and force on the brake pedal.
