Research Study




The Transportation Research Center Inc. is conducting a research study for the United States Department of Transportation's National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).  The study will evaluate different tools that researchers use to measure distraction caused by in-vehicle technologies and portable devices including cell phones.

Participation involves one session of approximately 7-8 hours.  Participants will drive a driving simulator and perform in-vehicle tasks like tuning a radio or talking on a cell phone.  If selected, you will be invited to come to a laboratory facility located on the Transportation Research Center Proving Grounds in East Liberty, Ohio.  Participants will receive $42 per hour for time spent at the data collection facility, as well as mileage reimbursement for travel to and from the data collection site.
