UTTRI Faculty Snapshot: Birsen Donmez
“When we talk about automated vehicles, everyone thinks about the self-driving cars. But vehicles are already automated to some extent.”
– Birsen Donmez
What aspects of transportation does your research address?
Human factors. My research focuses on understanding and improving driver behaviour and performance. We conduct simulator, instrumented vehicle, and naturalistic studies. We also perform crash data analysis. Major topics we pursue are driver attention and interactions with technologies, including carried in devices and automated vehicle features.
What other important aspects of transportation does it connect to?
Our work mainly focuses on traffic safety. However, we also have done work at supporting medical vehicle dispatch decisions. Click here to continue reading UTTRI Faculty Snapshot of Professor Birsen Donmez.
