This paper discusses the development and implementation of FASTCARS (Freeway and Arterial Street Traffic Conflict Arousal and Resolution Simulator), an interactive microcomputer based animated simulator designed for in-laboratory experimentation and data collection to assist in the estimation ahd calibration of predictive models of driver behavior under the influence of real time information. FASTCARS combines a real time interactive driving simulation with visual and audio effects. The simulation encompasses the entire driving process from pre-trip planning through arrival at the destination.
