SEMINAR 19th March: Andrew Kun - In-vehicle user interfaces: deployment, and driving simulator studies at UNH

17 March 2014

Wednesday 19th March 2014 at 3pm in Gordon Sq 16-18, Room 101

Andrew Kun from the University of New Hampshire, USA.

For over a decade researchers at the University of New Hampshire have been involved in the exploration and deployment of in-vehicle user interfaces. This talk will provide a short review of our efforts on deploying in-vehicle user interfaces for police through our Project54 effort. Next, the talk will discuss a number of recent driving simulator-based studies in which eye tracking data was used to estimate the visual attention of the driver to the external world, the ability of the driver to control the vehicle, and the level of the driver’s cognitive load.

Bio: Andrew Kun is associate professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of New Hampshire. He is the principal investigator of the Project54 effort which involves integrating embedded mobile computing and wireless networking into police cruisers. His primary research interest is in developing user interfaces for situations when the user is involved in a manual-visual task, such as driving. Andrew is currently a Fulbright scholar at the Budapest University of Technology and Economics.
