Back in 2017, three years prior to joining rFpro, an autonomous and driving simulation technology company in the U.K., James W.H. Brown began studying for a Ph.D. by examining the usability of steering wheel-based controls in motorsport. Brown now has reached the stage where he will be running experiments, and the first part of his research requires collecting thoughts and opinions from racing drivers regarding steering wheel-based controls. Brown is looking for any level of experience, from club to F1, to complete the survey he has created, which is linked here.

NASA members are uniquely qualified to help with this research. The survey itself takes less than 10 minutes, and will provide Brown with valuable data that will inform design decisions aimed at improving driver performance and safety. If you have friends and colleagues who might be interested in completing the survey, share the link above. Thank you.
