SAFETY ANALYTICS AND HUMAN FACTORS
Naturalistic Driving Data and Simulator Studies
Using naturalistic driving data and simulator studies, we applied several analytics approaches and various ML techniques to understand factors affecting drivers' safety, crash occurrence, and driving behavior. We are currently working to understand the interaction between drivers and other road users using simulators and VR-based simulation environments.
Driver Interaction with Vehicle Automation and Connectivity
We use driving simulator studies to investigate the benefits of connected vehicle safety applications. Additionally, our work focuses on understanding driver interaction with automation during safety-critical events such as automation malfunction and forced transfer of control
