Naturalistic research provides a suitable basis for studying the distance to various kinds of lead vehicles. Our study utilizes the dataset created in the first large-scale naturalistic driving study in Europe (UDRIVE) and combines this with site-based speed data from Austria.

In this article, the authors will discuss both these results as well as the strengths and weaknesses of both data collection methods.
