Driving Simulation Research Group (DSRG)

Driving Simulation Research Group under Laboratory of System Reliability (LSR) of Faculty of Transportation Sciences (FTS) of Czech Technical Univerzity in Prague (CTU in Prague) has been working in the research tasks for many years in several areas:


  • Design and construction of driving simulators equipment for driver's behavior examination including complete creation of VR environment for it.
  • Driver's behavior research. Research on the field of driver's behavior clasification and development of equipment for such work.
  • Creating of road sceneries for VR, especially for driving simulators. Also automation of scene creating is developed here and used for new scene formation.
  • Development of experiments for driver's behavior classification studies.
  • Impact of HMI to the driving process. We make research of impact of HMI devices (like controls of radio, air-conditioning or navigation system) to the process of driving.
  • Driver's behavior classification in critical situation (road tunnels, extreme fatigue etc.). Our goal in this area is to find specific classifiers for driver's drowsiness rating. Those methods are mainly based on a complex of biological (mainly EEG) and technical measured data.
  • Interconnection to GIS systems for scene creation based on real geographic data. We form our VR scenes form real data to maximize the impression of reality in the driving simulators.
