This paper presents a driver model based upon the control model of the human operator. Vehicle driven by operator may be considered as control system with driver as a controller and vehicle as controlled system. Driver efficiency depends on situation on the road, vehicle characteristic and psychical and physical driver features. The state space model of human operator formulation uses Pade approximations to model the time delays inherent in the human operator. Driver is included in road-vehicle driver system as feedback element. Parameters describing drives behaviour could be identified based on system model in frequency domain (from transmissibility) or in time domain (from correlation). The paper presents initial conception taking into consideration driver working in the tractor ? agricultural machine set model.
