In this project several bibliographic material will be analyzed in order to support the study of driver's behaviors that influence on road safety. The usage of driving simulators to evaluate behavioral changes in stretches of a virtual highway with volunteers will also be studied. Furthermore, will be identified, metrics, or parameters, through bibliographic material that can be used to characterize driver's behavior. Thereby, such metrics may be analyzed, related to each other and, afterwards, tested in the simulator virtual environment for the purpose of validation. After validation, this study may serve as reference to future research that are based on the analysis of human behavior while driving auto-vehicles.
