The real-world fuel economy of vehicles is becoming increasingly important to manufacturers and customers. One of the major influences in this is driver behaviour, but it is difficult to study in a controlled and repeatable manner.
An assessment of driver models for studying real-world driver behaviour has been carried out. It has been found that none of the currently existing driver models has sufficient fidelity for studying the effects of real-world driver behaviour on the fuel economy of the individual vehicle.
A decision-making process has been proposed which allows a driver model with a range of driving tasks to be developed. This paper reports the initial results of a driver model as applied to the conceptually straightforward scenario of high-speed cruising. Data for the driver model have been obtained through real-world data logging.
It has been shown that the simulation driver model can provide a good representation of real-world driving behaviour in terms of the vehicle speed, and this is compared with a number of logged driver speed traces. A comparison of the modelled fuel economy for logged and driver model real-world drivers shows good agreement.
