AgeLab Research Scientist Bryan Reimer will receive an Autos2050 Driving Innovation Award, the Auto Alliance and the Alliance for Transportation Innovation announced yesterday.
Autos2050 offers perspectives from policy experts and thought leaders on the future of driving. The Driving Innovation Awards honor those who made "game-changing contributions to the automotive industry over the last year."
This year's winners include CEOs, governors, and members of Congress.
Dr. Reimer's work with the Advanced Vehicle Technology Consortium has been providing a data-driven understanding of how people engage with vehicle automation, using advanced computer-vision software and big data analytics. As of 2017, the consortium has gathered data across more than 7,146 participant days, 78 drivers and 275,589 miles of travel.
The awards will be conferred at a reception in Washington, D.C. on January 24th.
