This paper demonstrates a novel car-following model based on driver or passengers’ comfort. As we know, hasty deceleration during emergency brake will cause passengers feel uncomfortable. According to the relationship between brake acceleration and people’s comfortable feeling, the comfortable model is setup. The model calculates the following car’s acceleration by measuring the distance between the following car and the preceding car, the velocity of the following car, and controls the car’s acceleration to make driver and passengers feel comfort. The paper combine the model with the pervasive computing concept, provoke the pervasive computing driver behavior modeling idea and turn it into reality to increase the adaptability and reliability of car’s parts, when car equipped with this device, the prospect is not only the assistant driver or comfortable driver are realized in the car-following circumstance, but also the whole car’s performance will be improved.
