Car Talk

Want to know what tomorrow's cars will be able to do? Head on over to the Laboratory for Intelligent and Safe Automobiles (LISA) at the Jacobs School of Engineering. Led by Mohan Trivedi, a professor of electrical engineering, who also is a researcher at Calit2, the lab aims to understand driver behavior and improve technology.

Bonus: LISA is looking for volunteers for test drives in its new simulator.

"Understanding driver behavior is critical to reducing fatalities on U.S. roads," Trivedi said in a lengthy feature that ran in the latest edition of at / UCSD, UC San Diego's alumni magazine. "So in a very real sense, the students who volunteer to spend 30 minutes in the simulator could be saving lives down the road."
