 Subjects

We are always seeking licensed drivers to serve as subjects in UMTRI research. The Driver Interface Group conducts about 6 experiments a year, with a typical experiment involving 16-36 subjects. Drivers of all ages are generally tested, with the ages of interest depending upon the target user population and interests of the sponsor. All subjects should be able-bodied. Subjects should bring their license and any eye wear normally worn while driving. Experiments last about 2 hours and may involve driving either the simulator or an instrumented test vehicle for one or two sessions. Depending on the demands of the experiment, subjects are typically paid $15-$20 per hour. Those interested in being placed on the group's subject list should contact Betty Winstel, the Human Factors Division secretary at 734-764-4158.
