A flexible and intuitive non-linear driver model is proposed, which allows setting of physically relevant parameters for representation of both typical high and typical low skill drivers in a path tracking scenario with constant speed. The model is equipped with a relatively simple internal vehicle model and is divided into three levels of driving skill: perceptual, anticipatory and interpretational skill; decisional skill; and execution skill. Validation of the model is performed using the results from moving base driving simulator tests with the double lane change scenario described in ISO 3888-1:1999. The parameter sets used for the model configuration are selected based on physical relevance to the model and optimisation is carried out with a Nelder-Mead implementation, showing that the model is able to resemble the characteristics of the driver types in the scenario for 70 km/h, and with adjustments being able to represent drivers at other speeds.
