A Driving Simulator Study of Young Driver's Behavior under Angry Emotion 2019-01-0398
The driving behavior of young drivers under the influence of anger is analyzed by driving simulator in this paper. A total of 12 subjects are enrolled during the experiment. Standardized videos are utilized to induce the driver's anger emotion. And the driver's electrocardiogram (ECG) signal is collected synchronously and compared before and after emotional trigger, which prove the validity of emotional trigger. Based on the result, the driver's driving behavior under the straight road and the curve under two different states of normal and angry is compared and analyzed. The results of independent sample t-test show that there are significant differences in the running time of straight sections and the standard deviation of steering wheel angle in curves between normal and angry states. In conclusion, the longitudinal and lateral operation of drivers is unstable in angry state and the driver will be more destructive to the regular driving behavior. The results can provide theoretical basis and data support for the analysis of driving behavior mechanism in anger.
