The event-related potential (ERP technology) and the psychological software E-prime 2.0 is used to present the simulated scenario, and the NeuroOne EEG event-related potential system is used to obtain the electrical signal acquisition. The stimulus material is composed of 30 car accident videos in the driver’s position to realize the brain of a person in a state of emergency. A series of processing are carried on the original signals to obtain ERP signals. After superimposing and averaging, the incubation period, amplitude, and brain area distribution of human EEG signals such as P300 and N400 in an emergency state are obtained. These characteristics show that human body motion and audiovisual hearing have the greatest effect when emergencies occur or when receiving stimuli. And it can provide analysis and recommendations for personnel ERP in emergency situations.
