Tests with human drivers in a driving simulator are used for developing dynamic models of drivers during emergency highway steering maneuvers. The maneuvers were required to avoid colliding with suddenly emerging simulated lane-blocking vehicles and objects. The driver models are intended for forming vehicle-driver simulation models that are used in analysis of highway accidents caused by lane obstructions. Four standard driver models are derived based on the test results, ranging from a cautious driver to an aggressive driver. Test data is provided to allow derivation of additional driver models.
