From the reviews:
"Thirty-seven authors contribute 21 papers to this book. … They provide a multifaceted description of driver-behavior modeling based on their expertise in different fields, and the state of the art in this field is described from many perspectives. … The book presents a comprehensive overview of topics for development and open issues characterizing potential new research. It is intended for researchers and practitioners; managers will also find the book useful." (O. Balci, ACM Computing Reviews, September, 2008)
In the automotive environment, the paradigm of the joint human machine system is called the "Driver-Vehicle-Environment" (DVE) model. Several studies have pointed out the uniqueness of this domain, which can refer to minimum standardisation and normalisation of behaviours, contexts and technology. This book presents a general overview of various factors that contribute to modelling human behaviour in a DVE. In practice, it is rare that all of these aspects have to be considered in total by a designer or safety analyst. However, they all contribute to creating the overall picture of the DVE model, and show the scope and dimensions of the many different interaction process that may take place and demand modelling consideration. This long-awaited volume written by experts in the field presents state-of-the-art research and case studies. It will be invaluable reading for graduate students, researchers and professional practitioners alike.
