Wed, 04/30/2014

AgeLab research scientist Bryan Reimer gave two talks at the 2014 Lifesavers National Conference on Highway Safety Priorities in Nashville, TN.

In the first talk, “Driver Assistance Systems and the Transition to Automated Vehicles: A Path to Increase Older Adult Safety and Mobility?” he discussed how advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), such as automatic emergency braking, may be beneficial to older adult safety and some of the human centered struggles that must be overcome for older adults so that they might benefit from automated vehicles.

In his second talk, “ Assessing Attentional Focus with Modern Multi-Modal Driver Vehicle Interfaces: Selected Results from Field and Simulation Studies", Dr. Reimer highlighted recent results from a set of three field driving studies assessing the multi-modal demand of a production level voice command system and simulation studies investigating drives use of visual-manual and voice control to enter destinations.
