Even though automakers have actively been conducting studies on autonomous navigation thanks to the development and application of wireless Internet technology, the traffic accident has been kept unsolved. The causes of the accident are drowsy driving, a mistake of a driver, environmental factors, and a wrong road structure; Driving manner and characteristics of a driver among the causes are significantly influential for the accident. In this paper, a study to measure characteristics of zigzag driving that can be seen before an occurrence of an accident regarding traffic accidents that can be incurred while driving manually or autonomously was conducted. While existing studies measured zigzag driving based on characteristics of the change of lateral angular velocity by imaging techniques or driving manner on the first and second lane, this study proceeded to measure zigzag driving by setting a lateral moving distance and a critical value range by utilizing the value of a sensor.
