This report provides a bibliography that tries to bridge the gap between psychophysiological lab studies of driving and naturalistic driving studies of real-world behavior. The former are experimental in nature, while the latter are observational. Due to advances in instrumentationwearable sensors and analysis classification techniques researchers, in recent years, are better able to measure driver activity psychophysiological and behavioral on-the-road. The listed studies cover various behavioral and physiological states that can lead to incidents and accidents workload, sleepinessfatigue, distractionvigilance, and stress, and characteristics that can affect driving performance vehicle autonomy and drivers visual attention. All these studies collected data from subjects driving on roads, as opposed to lab simulation. They employed a variety of measurement techniques, such as electroencephalography, heart rate monitoring, galvanic skin response or electrodermal activity, and eye tracking. Another list of references is given for more background on real-world driving studies, the differences between real-world and simulation driving, and more overviews of measuring drivers behavioral and psychophysiological states. Given the dearth of research on military driver psychophysiology and behavior under real-world conditions and situations driving off-road, wearing night vision goggles, etc., a military conditions list of references can only provide some background to studying the relevant issues.
