Sixteen students entered eight projects in the 2022 Summer Poster Competition. This years event was held in a virtual environment which enabled increased participation and engagement. In virtual breakout rooms students met with guests from throughout UMTRI, Michigan Engineering as well as sponsors, presenting their projects and answering questions. They also prepared a five minute video presentation which is shared below.
This year’s judges were:
Josh Domeyer, a senior researcher in Toyota’s Collaborative Safety Research Center. His research focuses on human factors of transportation systems, including topics such as driver-automation interaction, pedestrian behavior modeling, and driver distraction. He is the chair of SAE’s Safety and Human Factors steering committee and serves as an expert in the ISO Driver-Vehicle Interaction working group, which develops standards for human factors-related topics.
Danyan Tian, a research scientist at Honda Research Institute USA, Inc. Her research interests include application design and development of connected and automated vehicles, vehicle-to-everything (V2X) communication systems, and driver behavior modeling. She serves as a Honda representative, in vehicle-to-infrastructure research consortium and in standardization working groups, and secretary in the SAE V2X Vehicular Applications Technical Committee
And David Eby, a research professor at UMTRI, group head of the UMTRI Behavioral Sciences Group, and associate director for faculty affairs at UMTRI. Dr. Eby’s work at UMTRI has encompassed a number of topics in traffic safety and mobility. He has managed more than 70 projects as a principal investigator and he has authored more than 320 scholarly publications. He is the lead author of two books on older adult mobility
