Language processes during overt and covert speech in a simulated driving task
We used MEG to explore the neural correlates of language processing in a simulated driving environment. Functional MRI and MEG studies require subjects to remain still and not move their mouths, unlike real on-road driving conditions. MEG was used to identify the cortical regions engaged in...
Acquisition, response, and error rates with three suites of collision warning sounds
The acquisition, response speed, and error rates of three suites of collision warning sounds were investigated to evaluate the effect of sound alteration on responding. In each suite, four sounds were pictorially associated with four collision scenarios. Suite A included two natural sounds, and two...
Validation of the static load test for event detection during hands-free conversation
To see if visual event reaction times (RTs) during handsfree conversation conditions in the Enhanced Static Load Test (ESLT) can predict RTs in similar conditions in on-road driving. Methods. Brake reaction times to random center and side light events were measured while watching a driving video,...
Intelligent vehicles + infrastructure to address transportation problems: a strategic approach
Transportation systems around the world are showing signs of strain, and safety, congestion, and energy usage are significant societal problems. In the past, transportation professionals have attempted to solve these problems through largely "siloed" approaches focused on vehicle crashworthiness,...
Understanding driver self-regulating behavior: how does phone use influence vehicle control in real world?
In the last few years, research on driver distraction focused on assessing the extent to which using mobile phones is compatible with safe driving. Many studies employing driving simulators suggested that using a phone while driving is definitely unsafe. Nevertheless, so far, naturalistic studies,...
