NADS Featured in Optometry Journal

December 31, 2012
The National Advanced Driving Simulator (NADS) is featured in Optometry, the journal of the American Optometric Association.

The article, authored by Mark Wilkinson, UI professor of ophthalmology and visual sciences; Tim Brown, senior team leader, cognitive systems engineering, NADS; and Omar Ahmad, director of operations, NADS, describes the capabilities in vision-related research offered by NADS.  It reviews the advantages of performing driving research in a high-fidelity driving simulator where the driver can be challenged in ways that could lead to property damage and personal injury if done on a test track or public roadway. Several vision-related studies have been performed at NADS and are summarized in the article.
