dc.description.abstractThis research effort aims to create a new car-following model that accounts for the effects of emotion on driver behavior. This research effort is divided into eight research milestones: (1) the development of a segmentation and clustering algorithm to perform new investigations into driver behavior; (2) the finding that driver behavior is different between drivers, between car-following periods, and within a car-following period; (3) the finding that there are patterns in the distribution of driving behaviors; (4) the finding that driving states can result in different driving actions and that the same driving action can be the result of multiple driving states; (5) the finding that the performance of car-following models can be improved by calibration to state-action clusters; (6) the development of a psychophysiological driving simulator study; (7) the finding that the distribution of driving behavior is affected by emotional states; and (8) the development of a car-following model that incorporates the influence of emotions.en
