National Advanced Driving Simulator Measures Driver Interactions with Automated Driving System

One of the largest simulators in the world, the National Advanced Driving Simulator (NADS) at the University of Iowa, was recently used to conduct a study of automated driving as part of a SAFER-SIM University Transportation Center research project. The Center is dedicated to promoting interdisciplinary research using simulation techniques to address safety issues prioritized by the U.S. Department of Transportation.
