In this paper, the sedan size vehicle converted into the data acquisition test-bed and the human driver model development, decision making algorithm is presented. The data acquisition vehicle is built by assembling the necessary sensor sets to collect data from the human driver and from the environment. The main purpose is to contribute to the active safety in the Intelligent Transportation Systems area by improving driver and driving prudence through signal processing and advanced information technologies. The expected deliverable of this data acquisition capable vehicle may be served along the human driver model development and decision making for intersection driving in order to reduce accidents on a real-time basis. Preliminary sensor setup and human driver modeling studies are presented by emphasizing the links between these two works. © 2007 IEEE.
