Distracted driving is the new driving. It does not, however, make it any safer.  So, what do you do when you can't change the people? You change the cars, which is what Dr. John Hansen, and the UTDrive team have been doing.  Dr. Hansen will discuss their work on driver behavior and what they are doing to improve the interaction between car and driver to help not only distracted but new drivers avoid crashes.

Dr. John Hansen is a professor of electrical engineering in the Erik Jonsson School of Engineering and Computer Science at The University of Texas at Dallas.
