  • Call for GPS users to complete a short online questionnaire

    Drivers needed to participate in online questionnaire

    I am a researcher in the Mixed Reality Laboratory at the University of Nottingham.

    Drivers with over 6 months experience are needed to complete a short online questionnaire assessing driver characteristics and behaviour. I am particularly interested in recruiting users of in-vehicle navigation systems.

    The questionnaire is completely anonymous and should only take 5 to 10 minutes to complete. The results will be applicable to the development of safer in-vehicle technologies.

    If you would like to take part in this research, please follow the link below to my homepage at the University of Nottingham. Here you will find a brief description of this research, and a link to the online questionnaire. Questions have been designed to help fill in some of the gaps in the current driving-research literature on in-vehicle navigation systems.

    Yours Faithfully

    wow, you're geeky looking.... lol but I took the survey for ya

    for question 11 you might want to make an option for PC based and software used. Instead of Make/Model that implies an aftermarket ready made product.

    also, the yes/no/not sure you might get a more accurate "reading" if you do a 5 point system of yes/somewhat/neither yes or no/not really/no
