A new “MTTI Driving Research Seminar Series” is being launched as an activity of the Exploring Next Generation IN-vehicle INterfaces (ENGIN) project supported by Michigan Tech Transportation Institute (MTTI).
This seminar series will be held from 3 to 4 p.m. on the first Tuesday of every month in room 109 of the Harold Meese Center.
The title of the first talk by Shabnam is “The Effects of Google Glass on Driving Behavior.” This work has been done in the Humane Interface Design Enterprise (HIDE) under advice of Robert Pastel (CS).
In addition to the presentation, we will discuss and share ideas for research projects and proposals together. All faculty, students and staff who are interested in driving research are welcome.
The tentative list of presenters for this spring semester includes:
Tuesday, February 2 — Maryam “Shabnam” FahrHosseini (CLS/HIDE Enterprise)
Tuesday, March 1 — Mehdi Jafari (ECE)
Tuesday, April 5 — Ye “Sarah” Sun (MEEM)
Tuesday, May 3 — David Nelson (CEE/MTTI/RTP)
We will discuss various topics, such as Human Factors issues-distraction, stress and fatigue, emotions, electric vehicles and autonomous vehicles, sensors, grade crossing and naturalistic driving research. Refreshments will be provided.
If you have any questions about the seminar or want to present, contact Philart Jeon.
