This paper introduces a queueing network-based computational model to explain driver performance in a pedestrian-detection task assisted with night-vision-enhancement systems. The computational cognitive model simulated the pedestrian-detection task using images displayed by two night-vision systems as input stimuli. The system equipped with a far-infrared (FIR) sensor generated less-cluttered images than the system equipped with a near-infrared (NIR) sensor. Using a reinforcement learning process, the model developed eye-movement strategies for each night-vision system. The differences in eye-movement strategies generated different eye-movement behaviors, in accord with the empirical findings.
