The presented publication contains a comprehensive summary of methods of evaluation and analysis of driving behavior with the help of a simulator.

The book summarizes the theoretical background of the issue and presents examples of many simulator studies. A great advantage of using a simulator in research or in driver training is the possibility to expose drivers to risky traffic situations, which for technical or ethical reasons cannot be induced artificially in real traffic.
