Timothy Brown, Yefei He, Cheryl Roe, Tom SchnellIs More Better? Night Vision Enhancement System's Pedestrian Warning Modes and Older Drivers
Journal paper
Pedestrian fatalities as a result of vehicle collisions are much more likely to happen at night than during day time. Poor visibility due to darkness is believed to be one of the causes for the higher ...1/1/2010
Daniel McGehee, Oliver CarstenPerception and biodynamics in pre-crash response
Journal paper
This research seeks to better understand unalerted driver response just prior to a serious vehicle crash. Few studies have been able to view a crash from the inside—with a camera focused on the driv ...1/1/2010
Cher Carney, Daniel McGehee, John Lee, Michelle Reyes, Mireille RabyUsing an event-triggered video intervention system to expand the supervised learning of newly licensed adolescent drivers
Journal paper
Objectives. We examined whether feedback from an event-triggered video intervention system reduced the number of safety-relevant driving errors made by newly licensed adolescents. Methods. We used a 1 ...6/1/2010
