Driving Behavior Studies

Imagine a world where virtual reality and driving simulators come together to assess and analyze the safety and behavior of drivers in different J/U turn configurations. That’s exactly what the transportation research group (ZouSim) at the University of Missouri’s Civil Engineering department set out to do in their interdisciplinary collaborative study. Using real traffic data from the Missouri Department of Transportation, different VR driving scenarios on US 63 were developed and tested in a lab environment. As a member of this team, my focus was on designing and developing the simulated scenarios for the experiment.

Study 1: J/U Turn Design Configurations

Study 2: Divided Attention and Situational Awareness

In another exciting study, we delved into the world of driver behavior, focusing specifically on their drivers’ divided attention, situational awareness, and the relationship with instrument cluster design options. In a simulated environment, we designed and developed testing materials, conducted eye-tracking research, and analyzed the results. My role in this project included designing and executing the study as well as designing different alternatives for car instrument cluster. Together, these two projects provide valuable insights into the future of safe and efficient driving.
