    • Differential effects of refractive blur on day and nighttime driving performance 

      Wood, Joanne M.; Collins, Michael J.; Chaparro, Alex; Marszalek, Ralph P.; Carberry, Trent P.; Lacherez, Philippe; Chu, Byoung Sun (Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology, Inc., 2014-04)
      PURPOSE. To investigate the effect of different levels of refractive blur on real-world driving performance measured under day and nighttime conditions. METHODS. Participants included 12 visually normal, young adults ...
    • Effect of simulated visual impairment on nighttime driving performance 

      Wood, Joanne M.; Chaparro, Alex; Carberry, Trent P.; Chu, Byoung Sun (American Academy of Optometry, 2010-06)
      Purpose. This study investigated the effects of simulated visual impairment on nighttime driving performance and pedestrian recognition under real-road conditions.Methods. Closed road nighttime driving performance was ...
    • Even moderate visual impairments degrade drivers' ability to see pedestrians at night 

      Wood, Joanne M.; Tyrrell, Richard A.; Chaparro, Alex; Marszalek, Ralph P.; Carberry, Trent P.; Chu, Byoung Sun (Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology Inc., 2012-03-16)
      PURPOSE. To determine the effect of moderate levels of refractive blur and simulated cataracts on nighttime pedestrian conspicuity in the presence and absence of headlamp glare. METHODS. The ability to recognize pedestrians ...
    • How multitasking interacts with visual impairment and age on measures of driving performance 

      Wood, Joanne M.; Chaparro, Alex; Carberry, Trent P.; Hickson, Louise (2005-12)
      This study investigates the impact of visual and auditory secondary tasks on the driving performance of participants (14 younger and 14 older) with simulated visual impairment. Participants drove around a closed road circuit ...
    • Investigation of the interaction between visual impairment and multi-tasking on driving performance 

      Wood, Joanne M.; Chaparro, Alex; Carberry, Trent P. (Australasian College of Road Safety, 2006-12)
      Purpose: This study investigated the effects of visual and auditory secondary tasks on the driving performance of young and old participants with simulated visual impairment and those experiencing age-related declines in ...
    • Seeing pedestrians at night: Visual clutter does not mask biological motion 

      Tyrrell, Richard A.; Wood, Joanne M.; Chaparro, Alex; Carberry, Trent P.; Chu, Byoung Sun; Marszalek, Ralph P. (Elsevier Ltd., 2009-05)
      Although placing reflective markers on pedestrians' major joints can make pedestrians more conspicuous to drivers at night, it has been suggested that this "biological motion" effect may be reduced when visual clutter is ...
    • Simulated visual impairment affects night-time driving and pedestrian recognition 

      Wood, Joanne M.; Chaparro, Alex; Carberry, Trent P.; Chu, Byoung Sun (ARVO, 2010-05)
      PURPOSE: To determine how simulated visual impairment impacts on night-time driving performance and pedestrian recognition measured under real road conditions. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN: Night-time driving performance of 20 young ...
