Amanda D. Ohlhauser, Linda Ng Boyle, Dawn Marshall, Omar AhmadDrivers’ Behavior Through a Yellow Light: Effects of Distraction and Age
Conference paper
The decision to proceed through an intersection once the traffic signal has changed to yellow may increase the risk for a collision. This study sought to understand how age differences, cell phone use ...9/1/2011
Chris Schwarz, Yefei He, Andrew VeitEye Tracking in a COTS PC-based Driving Simulator: Implementation and Applications
Conference paper
An eye tracker has been integrated with the NADS MiniSim, a COTS PC-based driving simulator based on the large motion-based NADS-1. This work was motivated by increasing use of eye tracker data for bo ...6/1/2011
David HeitbrinkScripting Automation for a Graphical Scenario Authoring System
Conference paper
Scenario authoring at the National Advanced Driving Simulator (NADS) uses an interactive graphical tool that permits non-technical people to create scenarios without requiring any programming experien ...6/1/2011
Michelle Reyes, John LeeSimulator Data Reduction
Book chapter
Effective use of driving simulators requires considerable technical and methodological skill along with considerable background knowledge. Acquiring the requisite knowledge and skills can be extraordi ...4/25/2011
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
Michelle Reyes, John Lee, Yulan Liang, Joshua Hoffman, Ritchie HuangCapturing driver response to in-vehicle human-machine interface technologies using facial thermography
Conference paper
Measuring driver response to in-vehicle human-machine interface (HMI) systems is critical for the automotive design and evaluation process. Physiological measures provide a useful complement to perfor ...6/22/2009
Michelle Reyes, John LeeEffects of cognitive load presence and duration on driver eye movements and event detection performance
Journal paper
This study examined the effects of cognitive load on driving performance for interactions with an in-vehicle information system (IVIS) that varied in duration from 1 to 4 min. Twelve participants drov ...11/1/2008
Cheryl Roe, Timothy Brown, Ginger WatsonFactors associated with simulator sickness in a high-fidelity simulator
Conference paper
Sickness related to simulator use is a common problem that researchers face when designing experiments. The amount of time in the simulator, the number and length of drives, and the type of maneuver c ...9/1/2007
Yulan Liang, Michelle Reyes, John LeeReal-time detection of driver cognitive distraction using Support Vector Machines
Journal paper
As use of in-vehicle information systems (IVISs) such as cell phones, navigation systems, and satellite radios has increased, driver distraction has become an important and growing safety concern. A p ...6/4/2007
Yulan Liang, Michelle Reyes, John LeeNon-intrusive detection of driver cognitive distraction in real-time using Bayesian networks
Journal paper
Driver distraction has become an important and growing safety concern as the use of in-vehicle information systems (IVISs), such as cell phones and navigation systems, continues to increase. One appro ...6/1/2007
Yefei HeNADS MiniSim Driving Simulator
Technical note
The NADS MiniSim driving simulator is a highly flexible PC-based driving simulation system. It uses the same advanced technologies built into the more sophisticated large NADS simulators, at a fractio ...9/30/2006
Chris SchwarzNADS Vehicle Dynamics Typical Modeling Data
Technical note
The National Advanced Driving Simulator (NADS) vehicle dynamics models are high-fidelity multi-body models. Suspension elements are modeled as bodies, in addition to the chassis; and non-linear relati ...8/14/2006
Ginger S. Watson, Yiannis E. Papelis, Omar AhmadDesign of Simulator Scenarios to Study the Effectiveness of Electronic Stability Control Systems
Conference paper
The mission of the National Advanced Driving Simulator is to conduct highway safety research that will reduce the annual loss of life on US roadways. The NADS is particularly well suited in its abilit ...1/22/2006
Yiannis Papelis, Omar Ahmad, Ginger WatsonDriving Simulation Scenario Definition Based on Performance Measures
Conference paper
For many reasons, the development of a quantitative methodology for describing driving simulation scenarios has been elusive. Without a quantitative technique for describing scenarios, portability suf ...11/30/2005
Chris SchwarzTwo Mitigation Strategies for Motion System Limits
Conference paper
Limited workspace is a challenge for all motion-based simulators, whether they are large excursion systems, like the NADS, or smaller simulators utilizing only Stewart Platforms. Two approaches for ad ...11/1/2005
Sunil Bulusu, Yiannis Papelis, Bin Chen, Matt Schikore, Omar AhmadEmbedded Data: A Step Forward in the Data Reduction Process
Conference paper
A key problem with data collected during experimental studies is the expeditious reduction and delivery of reduced data. It is not unusual to generate over 500 MB of raw data for a 20-minute drive on ...11/1/2005
Weidong Pan, Yiannis PapelisReal-time dynamic simulation of vehicles with electronic stability control: Modeling and validation
Journal paper
This paper presents an approach to real-time dynamic simulation of vehicles with electronic stability control (ESC). The approach involves the integration of ESC software into the powertrain and brake ...11/1/2005
Omar AhmadIssues Related to the Commonality and Comparability of Driving Simulation Scenarios
Conference paper
The primary motivation for using driving simulators for research is the ability to safely expose participants to traffic situations in a controlled and repeatable manner. The process by which a simula ...7/10/2005
