Inter-vehicle communication is becoming increasingly rele-
vant in the research and development of novel, innovative vehicular ap-
plications. To support the driver in his/her primary driving task in an
effective non distracting way, these applications need to be evaluated in
a realistic context from a driver’s perspective of the VANET environ-
ment. In this paper we propose an innovative driver-centric simulation
tool that integrates a VANET simulator with a driving simulator using
communication technologies to relay information about the vehicle to the
VANET environment and vice versa. The driver behavior is reflected in
the VANET simulation system affecting the mobility of the cars in the
vicinity and providing the intelligent driving model with new realistic
