Ph.D. Student: Industrial and Operations Engineering
Ke’s dissertation focuses on quantifying driving workload. This research is being conducted because there is no consistent way to quantify driver workload. For research conducted concerning distraction, what is too distracting depends on the primary task of driving. Similarly, for studies of automated driving, takeover time, which is important for driving safety, depends on workload. In addition, she has conducted projects on assessing warnings in manually driving vehicles (in a driving simulator) and examining driver responses to HMI in automated vehicles (on the road).
