Aggressive driving behavior is among the important causes of traffic accidents. Hence, detection of driver aggressiveness has an importance in terms of decreasing the number of traffic accidents. Collected driving data while the vehicle is in traffic can be used to make inferences about the aggressiveness of the driver. In this study, a multimodal method is proposed in order to detect driver aggressiveness. The proposed method is based on utilizing the visual data taken from the on vehicle camera and sensor data taken from the controller area network bus (CAN-bus) in order to decide whether the driving session involves aggressive driving behavior. Lane following pattern and vehicle following distance information is obtained from the data collected by camera while vehicle speed and engine speed information is obtained from CAN-bus. These information is fused to conceive feature vectors that represent the driving session and aggressiveness decision is made according to the classification of these feature vectors.

Most of the traffic accidents are caused by human related factors. One of the most important human related factor in terms of traffic accident risk is aggressive driving behavior. Although driver aggressiveness is related with psychological reasons, it can be detected by observation of driving behavior using different sensing devices. This work presents a driver aggressiveness detection method exploiting the visual data obtained by on vehicle camera. The proposed method uses this visual data in order to ext...
THE MEDIATING ROLE OF DRIVING-RELATED COGNITIONS AND ANXIETY IN THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN DRIVING SKILLS AND DRIVING BEHAVIORS
Azık Özkan, Derya; Öz, Bahar; Department of Psychology (2022-8-12)
Driving skills and driving behaviors, as being the human factors in driving, are the most studied and most influential variables of efforts to sustain a safe traffic environment. Although these factors were investigated in the literature and their relationships with different variables and each other are examined in various studies with various samples; anxiety-related factors have always been evaluated only within limited (avoidant) or clinical groups. However, anxiety, like anger, is a negative emotional ...

Driver Aggressiveness Detection Using Visual Information from Forward Camera
Kumtepe, Omurcan; Akar, Gözde; Yuncu, Enes (2015-08-28)
Among the human related factors, aggressive driving behavior is one of the major causes of traffic accidents [17]. On the other hand, detection and characterization of driver aggressiveness is a challenging task since there exist different psychological causes behind it. However information about the driver behavior could be extracted from the data that is collected via different sensing devices. This paper presents a method to detect driver aggressiveness using only visual information provided by forward c...
A contextual model of driving anger: A meta-analysis
DEMİR, BAŞAR; DEMİR, SILA; Özkan, Türker (2016-10-01)
Driver anger is an important individual difference variable that has been investigated extensively for understanding driving outcomes. The Driving Anger Expression Inventory (DAX - i.e., physical, verbal, use of vehicle as an aggression tool, and adaptive/constructive practices) and the Driver Behavior Questionnaire (DBQ - i.e., errors, lapses, and violations) are common outcome measures for investigating how people express their anger while driving. The current study aims to conduct a meta-analytic review ...
