Abstract

Date Presented 03/28/20

This poster will illustrate the results of a two x two (old/young and on-road/simulator) repeated-measures study on hazard detection. The purpose is to analyze driving performance at night by combining eye-tracking technology and driving simulation to analyze on-road scanning behavior, visual attention, glance patterns, and hazard detection. Validity of driving simulators in predicting on-road performance with older-adult drivers in a safe and cost-effective manner will be discussed.
