Applying driving simulators for in-vehicle research allows for a wide range of studies to be performed particularly when investigating cognitive demand and distraction caused by devices in the car. By using simulations, researchers can investigate driving behaviors in high-risk situations without putting participants or others in harm's way. Currently being conducted within the School of Psychology at Georgia Tech, in-vehicle research could provide more insight into behavior and increase in applicability if participants were able to drive in areas that they are familiar with.
A Self-powered Reversibly Deformable Cord Sensor for Natural Human Input
How might we create confidence and increase communication to riders of a public transportation system? This project is focusing on creating an interactive display and experience for riders of the Georgia Tech Bus system. The goals of this display is to provide multi-sensory, at-a-glance information about the bus system in relation to the station's current location, while also providing more detailed information on closer inspections for users that wish to make a more informed decisions around using the bus.
