How do I get to NADS?

Dawn Marshall


Ms. Dawn Marshall is the director of the Safety Research using Simulation (SAFER-SIM) University Transportation Center (UTC) and a Research Manager with the National Advanced Driving Simulator (NADS) within the University of Iowa. She has been engaged in driving research since 1997 and has been with NADS since 2004 where she has served as Principal Investigator, Project Manager, and Data Collection Coordinator for several NHTSA funded projects as well as for the Iowa DOT, Rockwell Collins, Hyundai Motor Group and other public and private sector clients.

Ms. Marshall’s research with NADS has spanned several topics involving simulation, including projects evaluating in-vehicle systems such as adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, forward collision warning, intersection violation warning, and development and evaluation of situational awareness measures within a connected vehicles context. Her experience also includes the effectiveness of warning systems for older drivers, teen driving behavior near licensure, and integrated control heads for law enforcement.
