Nowadays’ a single day without use of transportation is unimaginable. No matter how small or big the distance is, we tends to use transport to travel from each place to another. There is a lot of medium available for traveling from one place to another. Among this mediums, traveling by roadway vehicles seems to be generally used. In recent times, many research has been done to create awareness for the driver and facilitate building assistance technologies. These assistance technologies help drivers not only to maintain but increase safe driving while not to interfere or giving too much information. These days many new technologies were implmented to create awareness for the driver. Before implementing a new technology into a vehicle, vehicle simulator can be used for driving assessment. In vehicle simulator, test scenarios are created for experimentation and to see how the test subject reacts on new surroundings. It is easy to execute the scenario in vehicle simulator and observe the human behavour rightaway and create the same environment over and over again.

In this thesis, I have watched and analysed naturalistic drive records and afterwards convert those videos into vehicle simulator scenarios. There are a lot of naturalistic drive records from different projects performed earlier in SAFER. These video recordings were taken from different type of roads. These video records can help us to understand better, how the driving vehicle would interact with other road users. Video records from FOT project and from China was analysed in this thesis. For analyzing the videos I have several meetings with my professor, supervisor and colleague from SEMCON and the results were put into a excel file. After analyzing, sorting and extracting the most significant video clips, I have designed storyboards based on that. Those story boards were used to develop scenarios in car simulator at the interaction design lab. These scenarios will be used for further future HMI studies and to test the design see if it can help the driver to avoid different kind of dangerous moments happening on the road. After designing the scenarios in vehicle simulator (STISIM), the results were taken out in log file and in realtime to use it another EFESOS projects.
