This research proposal the development and analysis of highway 3D scene to use in driving simulator, which aims to portray reality efficiently. The driving simulators come to aid research and study of the behavior of different types of conductors and also situations, as well as its practicality, economy and security in making various types of simulations of situations compared to a real everyday situation or risk involving risk the lives of the driver and vehicle passengers. Besides the possibility to simulate a variety of situations, such as critical situations, passing situations, abrupt and unexpected change of weather conditions, etc., which are difficult to be recreated in a real application. The highway for analysis and development using realistic driving simulator will be the highway Regis Bittencourt, a stretch of 5 km from the highway will be developed using the driving simulator software, from their geometric design, and also considering the arrangement of plates Vertical signaling for performing alignment of coordination holes perception tests in the driving simulator and signal fault position on the track. This research proposal will generate results which will be analyzed in order to get a conclusion regarding the perception failures and alignment of coordination in the driving simulator due to driver behavior and analysis of failures will be useful for the purpose of supporting road safety.
