Instrumented vehicle for the study of driver behaviour

Lescot's instrumented vehicle, Victor (Véhicule Instrumenté pour l'étude du ComporTement du cOnducteuR), is one of the means used by Ifsttar researchers to analyse driving behaviour by means of a simulation on an open road.
The researchers are particularly interested in the interactions between the driver, the vehicle and the driving environment. To carry out this research, the laboratory has equipped Victor with instrumentation to collect data characterising each of these 3 entities. This data is of various types: video, physical and physiological measurements and observations. They are recorded throughout the journey and synchronised with each other in real time or post-processed. In addition, thanks to a partnership with a car manufacturer, the data circulating on the CAN bus has been made accessible.
