Abstract:This paper presents a novel perspective of driving simulator application on traffic safety: exploring driving simulator as a traffic safety test tool at signalized intersections. In support of this concept, a signalized intersection with as many important features (including roadway geometries, traffic control devices, intersection surroundings, and buildings) was replicated into the UCF (University of Central Florida) driving simulator. A series of driving simulator experiments for the intersection were conducted to determine if the subjects` speed behaviors and traffic risk patterns in the driving simulator were similar to what were found at the real intersection. The experiment results showed that the advanced driving simulators can be used as a valid tool to assess traffic safety at signalized intersection.
