Bryan Reimer, Research Scientist at the AgeLab, was featured in a recent Forbes article about DriveSeg, an open dataset jointly released by the AgeLab and Toyota:
Engineers are investing significant creative and financial resources in developing higher levels of automation to support drivers to be ideally both increasingly comfortable and safe. However, true success requires a human-centered engineering perspective. It’s more important than ever to leverage the expertise of other disciplines that amplify each other’s capabilities. For instance, computer scientists have the ability to mine and model large scale complex systems, while human factors engineers and psychologists are trained in developing an understanding of human behavior to ensure systems are optimally used in a way that enhances accessible and safe mobility.
