Meeting Room A

As vehicle technology has become more complex and mobile devices more prevalent, the potential for driver distraction has increased. Dr. John Gaspar, Research Associate with the National Advanced Driving Simulator at the University of Iowa will explore the history and present state of driver distraction research and present a framework for considering distraction in vehicles.

The National Advanced Driving Simulator (NADS) is a self-sustained transportation safety research center at the University of Iowa. Begun in 1996 by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, NADS utilizes its suite of world-class driving simulators and instrumented vehicles to conduct research studies on the connections between humans and vehicles. From its inception, the mission of NADS has been to help save lives and reduce the costs of vehicle crashes by better understanding the impact of technology, pharmaceuticals and other factors on driving performance.

This program is part of the 2017 Adult Summer Reading Program.
