Human Factors in Driver Vision and Lighting
(Session Code: B301)

Room 116 B  10:00 a.m.

These papers highlight new results in driver perception and emphasize the enduring importance of driver perception for behavior and safety on the road. As usual, vision is central, but these papers illustrate how driver vision interacts with many domains: mechanisms of crash causation, overall geometry of driver accommodation, the acoustic environment, roadway markings, indirect vision systems, and how the complex and highly adapted human visual system functions in driving simulators.

Organizers - Michael Flannagan, Univ. of Michigan - Ann Arbor; Jianzhong Jiao, OSRAM Opto Semiconductors Inc.
