Quantitative Analysis of the Relationship Between Driver's Behavior and Vehicle Motion by 3-D Image Processing 1999-01-1912

This study quantitatively analyzed the movement of a driver's upper body in relationship to vehicle motion using Peak Motus, the three-dimensional image processing system. Consequently, this analysis method proved useful and effective in introducing the correlation between driver behavior and vehicle motion with numerical values.
It was found that while cornering, the drivers tended to incline their upper bodies to one side against centrifugal force and turn their heads in advance in the direction the vehicle was heading.
