This paper describes a series of tests done with a double articulated vehicle to investigate the driver behavior and directional stability of the vehicle during reverse driving. The tests have been done with several test configurations and a number of drivers. Besides the conventional instrumentation measuring the vehicle states also eye tracking glasses are employed. These glasses enable to detect the driver’s gaze direction, which helps to understand the driver behavior as well as problems being faced by the driver during such a maneuvers. The results from these tests will be used to define a framework for a driver support system during reversing of multi-articulated vehicles.
