Abstract

This project investigated and developed methods and technologies to allow experimenters to conduct and monitor data collection from a remote location. The technologies developed consist of a desktop application that allows researchers to view the vehicle cabin and various vehicle parameters (like speed, acceleration, etc.) in real time. Physically removing researchers from the vehicle during experiments can increase realism and offer naturalistic observations in traditional, experimenter-conducted studies. The remote experimentation methods and technologies developed can be particularly helpful for studying automated driving by creating a more natural environment while still maintaining oversight and control of the experiment.
