HumanFIRST Driving Simulation Educational Development
- Nichole Morris, Research Associate, Mechanical Engineering
- Peter Easterlund, Info Tech Professor, Mechanical Engineering
This project aims to leverage the investment in the new HumanFIRST driving simulator and propel the laboratory's capabilities through creation of three distinct simulated demonstrations, initially selected to focus on automated vehicle control hand-offs (to human drivers), distracted driving via nondriving-related in-vehicle technologies, and speeding in pedestrian-populated areas. The creation of this new content allows new funding opportunities and facilitates the research team to share knowledge through educational and training opportunities for our regional community. These topics are key research focus areas for the Roadway Safety Institute and are core focus areas for the HumanFIRST Laboratory and its funding stakeholders.
