My research is based upon the need to develop methods, in which, information can be presented to the driver of an automobile. Due to the increase in technological systems have many new methods, systems, and products become avaliable in the automobile. More and more complicated systems are also being crammed into the driver's field of vision thus increaseing the risk for distraction. I am looking into how we can combat that through new methods where information can be presented, so that information, warnings, messages, etc can be shown to the driver without risking the the drivers abiltiy to drive safely. We do not want drivers navigating automobles in traffic who could be more of an accident risk with all the complex saftey systems than without them. I have studied how drivers look at traffic and messages while driving and am learning what types of information to present to the driver in a specific location in the vehicle cabin. I am also working on how to grafically display driver information on the windshield.
