A realistic driver model can support the development of new steering technologies by reducing the time-consuming trial and error process of designing products. A neuromuscular driver model, by offering physiologically realistic steering maneuvers can provide insights into the task performance and energy consumption of the driver, including fatigue and muscle co-contraction. Here, two muscles are used in a simplified neuromuscular driver model. To study the effect of driver’s characteristics such as age, gender and physical ability on steering, the muscle parameters are adjusted to represent a particular population. Then, this modified driver model is used to to tune the Electric Power Steering (EPS) assist curves for that particular population.
