The MIT AgeLab seeks a number of summer UROPs who are interested in working on a series of on-going projects focused on the collection and analysis of driving performance data. UROP students will assist AgeLab researchers in running experiments in the AgeLab driving simulator, Miss Daisy, and in the on-road instrumented vehicle, the Aware Car. UROPs will also have responsibility for tasks involving the manipulation and analysis of data such as physiological measurements, cognitive task responses and driving performance. The ideal candidates will have strong oral communication skills and interest in human factors research. Interests in topics such as video recording/image processing, onboard vehicle systems, physiological measurements, database management, and working with experimental subjects are a plus. This position is unique in that it UROPs will have the potential to work alongside researchers from a wide variety of fields including, but not limited to civil, biomedical, mechanical, aero/astro engineering, human factors, sports psychology and psychophysiology.
Interested students are encouraged to send a resume and a brief paragraph of interest to Jarrod Orszulak.
