The perception and behavior of human drivers is of great importance for both sustainable road construction and sustainable coexistence with self-driving vehicles. To record the (hazard) perception and responsiveness of drivers, as many parameters as possible of the recognition and reaction process must be measured and recorded. It must be known what the drivers see or perceive and how they react to it. In modern vehicles, all pedal positions and driving data are transmitted to the CAN bus and can be assigned to the associated sources using reverse engineering methods. What drivers see or recognize can be recorded from the driver’s perspective using (eye-tracking) videos or photos. To evaluate the vehicle and image data, systems are required that can, among other things, record both channels and link them synchronously. To fulfill this purpose, two different systems are developed and compared here, both of which can be used in real traffic.
