The paper is investigating the relationship between human eye movements, correlated with the visual perception of computer generated scene on one hand and obstacle avoidance strategies on the other hand, during the process of driving a computer game-like car. Several issues were investigated regarding how the gaze fixation point of the driver is moving during obstacle avoidance maneuvers. The relevance of each issue in making a decision was assessed. The main goal is to establish a correlation (mapping) system between gaze fixation parameters and obstacles avoidance strategies in order to be able to develop cognitive algorithms for driver assistance in real world driving conditions, to monitor driver’s vigilance and ultimately to enable progress towards the autonomous vehicle which can avoid possible obstacles or resolve hazardous traffic situations just by monitoring the eye movements of the driver.
