Emergency Vehicle Operator On-Board Devices: Their Impact on Distraction, Safety and Performance (sponsored by the Transportation Safety Advancement Group)

Thursday, January 22 at 2pm ET.

Speakers: Christine Yager and Tom Ferris, Texas A&M Transportation Institute

The Texas A&M Transportation Institute explored the impact of on-board devices inside emergency response vehicles. While they can support emergency operations by facilitating easy access to necessary information, there is a potential downside to the introduction of these technologies in that they can endanger the professionals and other drivers on the road when driver choose (or are required) to interact with the technology while piloting the vehicle. This presentation explored the technologies, required interactions and the theories of human information processing as it relates to these issues.
