UI looking for Corridor drivers to test new app.
CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (CBS2/FOX28) —
The University of Iowa is Looking for Corridor drivers who regularly take I-380 between Cedar Rapids and Iowa City or I-80 between West Branch and Williamsburg to test out a new traffic app.
The National Advanced Driving Simulator in collaboration with HERE Technologies, the Iowa DOT, and Iowa State University, is inviting adults to participate in a project to evaluate a traffic safety hazard alerting application for Android mobile phones.
Your involvement will include downloading the application on your Android smartphone, driving with the application open on your phone and completing two surveys regarding your experiences with the application.
The app may be used for navigation purposes, but you do not have to use it -- it only needs to be open on your phone. In addition, you will be required to briefly meet with staff at the National Advanced Driving Simulator in Iowa City or Cedar Rapids to obtain a mount for your phone and sign some paperwork.
This visit will take no more than 15 minutes. Your participation in this project will last for 4 weeks.
Who can be part of this project?
* Must be over the age of 18
* Must have a valid U.S. driver's license and have access to an insured vehicle
* Must own an Android smartphone
* Must regularly drive on I-380 between Cedar Rapids and Iowa City or on I-80 between West Branch and Williamsburg
