The Human Centered Design (HCD) of Partial Autonomous Driver Assistance Systems (PADAS) requires Digital Human Models (DHMs) of human control strategies for simulating traffic scenarios. We describe first results to model lateral and longitudinal control behavior of drivers with simple dynamic Bayesian sensory-motor models according to the Bayesian Programming (BP) approach: Bayesian Autonomous Driver (BAD) models. BAD models are learnt from multivariate time series of driving episodes generated by single or groups of users. The variables of the time series describe phenomena and processes of perception, cognition, and action control of drivers. BAD models reconstruct the joint probability distribution (JPD) of those variables by a composition of conditional probability distributions (CPDs). The real-time control of virtual vehicles is achieved by inferring the appropriate actions under the evidence of sensory percepts with the help of the reconstructed JPD.
