HumanFIRST Driving Simulation Educational Development

Principal Investigator:

  • Nichole Morris, Research Associate, Mechanical Engineering


  • Peter Easterlund, Info Tech Professor, Mechanical Engineering

Project Summary:

This study aims to leverage the investment in the new HumanFIRST driving simulator and propel the laboratory's capabilities. The study will create three distinct simulated demonstrations, initially selected to focus on control hand-offs (to human drivers) from automated vehicles, distracted driving via non-driving related, in-vehicle technologies, and speeding in pedestrian populated areas. The creation of this new content is expected to allow new funding opportunities and will facilitate the research team to share knowledge through educational and training opportunities for the 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.
