Evaluation of Digital Alert Systems Associated to Emergency Response Vehicles and Compliance with Move Over Law

Digital alert systems broadcast the real-time presence of roadside hazards such as stopped emergency vehicles or roadway maintenance. This project will evaluate drivers’ responses to visual and auditory digital alert systems through a driving simulator and real-world experiments. Researchers will measure the effects of digital alert systems on compliance with the Move Over Law as well as mobility and safety. Measuring the benefits of digital alert systems will allow stakeholders to increase the use of the technology, increasing safety and improving mobility.
