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 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

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
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
John D. Lee, Daniel V. McGehee, Timothy L. Brown, Christian M. Richard, Omar Ahmad, Nicholas J. Ward, Shauna Hallmark, Joonbum LeeMatching Simulator Characteristics to Highway Design Problems
Journal paper
Driving simulators hold much promise for addressing roadway design issues. However, although simulators have demonstrated their value in experimental research addressing driver performance, their abil ...12/1/2011
Anthony McDonald, Chris Schwarz, John Lee, Timothy L. BrownReal-Time Detection of Drowsiness Related Lane Departures Using Steering Wheel Angle
Conference paper
Drowsy driving is a significant factor in many motor vehicle crashes in the United States and across the world. Efforts to reduce these crashes have developed numerous algorithms to detect both acute ...10/26/2012
Mark Wilkinson, Timothy Brown, Omar AhmadThe NADS Description and Capabilities in Vision-Related Reserach
Journal paper
This article reviews the advantages of performing driving research in a high-fidelity driving simulator where the driver can be challenged in ways that could lead to property damage and personal injur ...12/27/2012
John Gaspar, Mark Neider, Arthur KramerFalls risk and simulated driving performance in older adults
Journal paper
Declines in executive function and dual-task performance have been related to falls in older adults, and recent research suggests that older adults at risk for falls also show impairments on real-worl ...1/19/2013
Timothy Brown, John Lee, Chris Schwarz, Dary Fiorentino, Anthony McDonald, Eric Traube, Eric NadlerDetection of driver Impairment from drowsiness
Conference paper
Drowsy driving is a significant contributor to death and injury crashes on our nation’s highways accounting for more than 80000 crashes and 850 fatalities per year. Recent research using data from t ...5/27/2013
Gary Kay, Omar Ahmad, Timothy Brown, Andrew VeitComparison of the miniSim and STISim Driving Simulators for the Detection of Impairment: An Alcohol Validation Study
Conference paper
Summary: Detection of alcohol impairment is often used to evaluate the sensitivity of a protocol to detect the effects of other types of impairment. This study was designed to compare the sensitivity ...9/22/2013
John Lee, Nic Ward, Erwin Boer, Timothy Brown, Stacy Balk, Omar AhmadMaking driving simulators more useful for behavioral research – Simulator characteristics comparison and model-based transformation
Project report
A central issue in making simulators useful for highway and traffic engineers concerns how well driver behavior in the simulator corresponds to driver behavior in the real world. Simulator fidelity pl ...10/1/2013
Daniel McGeheeVisual and cognitive distraction metrics in the age of the smart phone
Journal paper
Sources of distraction are numerous and varied, and defining and measuring distraction and attention is complicated. The driving task requires constant adjustments and reallocation of attention to cog ...3/1/2014
John Gaspar, Mark Neider, James Crowell, Aubrey Lutz, Henry Kaczmarski, Arthur KramerAre gamers better crossers? An examination of action video game experience and dual task effects in a simulated street crossing task
Journal paper
A high-fidelity street crossing simulator was used to test the hypothesis that experienced action video game players are less vulnerable than non-gamers to dual task costs in complex tasks. BACKGROUND ...5/1/2014
