A virtual reality (VR) driving simulation platform has been built for use in addressing multiple research interests. This platform is a VR 3D engine (Unity © ) that provides an immersive driving experience viewed in an HTC Vive © head-mounted display (HMD). To test this
platform, we designed a virtual driving scenario based on a real tunnel used by Törnros to perform onroad tests  . Data from the platform, including driving speed and lateral lane position, was compared the published on-road tests. The correspondence between the driving simulation
and onroad tests is assessed to demonstrate the ability of our platform as a research tool. In addition, the drivers’ eye movement data, such as 3D gaze point of regard (POR), will be collected during the test with an Tobii © eye-tracker integrated in the HMD. The data set will
be analyzed offline and examined for correlations with driving behaviors in future study.
