How do I get to NADS?

Cher Carney


Cher Carney is a senior research associate at the National Advanced Driving Simulator. Her areas of research are driver performance assessment, eye movement, crash avoidance telematics and standards development. She has spent the past ten years examining naturalistic teen driving behavior, particularly the effect of providing feedback on driver safety and the prevalence of distracting behaviors.

Prior to coming to the University of Iowa in 2004, she was a Research Scientist at the Battelle Human Factors Transportation Center from July 1996 to October 1999. While at Battelle, Ms. Carney was involved in a variety of transportation-related research. She aided in the development of human factors design guidelines for in-vehicle display icons and other information elements. She was involved in the writing of the literature review for this project, conducted a preliminary assessment of visual symbols, and devised a working plan for the development of the design guidelines. Prior to this project, she was involved in supporting various tasks for the Advanced Traveler Information Systems (ATIS) and Commercial Vehicle Operations (CVO) components of an Intelligent Vehicle Highway Systems (IVHS) project and was involved extensively in the development of a comprehensive guideline document for the design of ATIS. She also supported the investigation of Side Object Detection Systems (SODS). Typically, project involvement for Ms. Carney has included literature review, materials design, simulation development, data collection, data analysis, and report writing.
