Date:8/15/2013

DETROIT Autonomous cars, driver distraction, and traffic signals for color-blind drivers are just some of the many topics to be discussed at a meeting of international experts on vision and driving, coming to metro Detroit.

The Detroit Institute of Ophthalmology (DIO) is holding its bi-annual research congress on September 16 18 at The Henry, 300 Town Center Drive, Fairlane Plaza, in Dearborn.

The Eye, The Brain, & The Auto is dedicated to improving the understanding of the relationship between vision and driving. At this collaborative event, the DIO brings together more than 30 authorities from the auto industry and the visual research world.

Lawrence Smythe. Ed.D. principal engineer, Human Engineering, Nissan Technical Center, N.A., Farmington Hills, and Lawrence Burns, Ph.D., are the keynote speakers.

  • Ergun Uc, M.D., University of Iowa, will discuss Driving Rehabilitation in Neurological Diseases of the Elderly, and p
