Organization profile

The Intelligent Vehicle Laboratory develops and tests innovative, human-centered technologies that improve the operational safety, mobility, and productivity of vehicles. These human-centered technologies integrate sensors, actuators, computer processors, and custom human interfaces to provide drivers with needed information under difficult driving conditions, including low visibility, severe weather, and narrow and congested roadways. Initially, these driver-assistive systems have been tested on specialty vehicles, including snowplows, patrol cars, ambulances, heavy vehicles, and transit vehicles. Ultimately, these systems will also be able to warn drivers and assist them with collision-avoidance and lane-keeping tasks on passenger vehicles.
