This special issue reports on papers with driving simulation applications presented at the 2007 International Conference on Road Safety and Simulation held in Rome. Road safety depends on the roadway environment, vehicles and drivers and papers in this issue touch on each of these areas. The use of simulation to study these issues is becoming more and more popular and the cost effectiveness for developing simulation facilities and implementing simulation studies is improving dramatically with advances in computer technology and software.
Keywords: driving simulation; driver behavior; road safety
