Who we are  

The team includes researchers from the Honda Research Institute and the Human Factors and Statistical Modeling Lab (HFSM) at the University of Washington.  

Study overview 

In this study, you will use a driving simulator for various scenarios and answer questions based on your driving experience. Our goal is to learn drivers’ situation awareness in various environments. 


  • Have a valid US driver’s license for more than one year
  • Drive at least 3,000 miles per year
  • Be fluent in English
  • Feel comfortable with using an eye tracker (which captures your eye movements)
  • Fully vaccinated against Covid-19: 2 weeks after your second dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna COVID-19 vaccines, or 2 weeks after the single-dose Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen COVID-19 vaccine.
  • Have not participated in a driving simulator study during the past 6 months.


$25 per hour for your time. The study will be about 2 hours. The payment will be provided in the form of a Tango gift card. If you drive to campus, we will also provide you with parking validation.
