Participants needed for autonomous driving simulation study

A research project at the RTI is seeking participants for a simulation of autonomous driving. Participants will be invited to the George’s Building at the Oxford Robotics Institute and will be asked to put on a virtual reality (VR) headset. They will then have a series of short experiences of autonomous driving in a driving simulator. After each simulation is complete, they will complete a brief questionnaire. This should take about 40 – 50 minutes overall, and participants will be thanked with an Amazon voucher for £10.

Requirements

  • Must be between 18-65 years of age
  • Have no underlying medical conditions that would preclude you from using a virtual reality headset.
  • Can use a virtual reality headset without corrective lenses, or at the least, small frame eyeglasses that can fit properly into an HTC Vive Pro headset without discomfort.
  • Able to physically attend the appointment at the Oxford Robotics Institute
  • Able and willing to participate in a user study at the Oxford Robotics Institute.
If you would like to participate, please choose a slot here before 10th of August.
