  • Develop methods for detecting the impaired performance in real-time so that it can risk can be mitigated

Research in the Area

See a summary of our major findings in drugged driving research from 2010 to 2020.

Long Term Aim

Reduce the number of fatalities attributable to driver impairment through a better understanding of the effects and through development of appropriate mitigations.
