CSRC Toyota - Collaborative Safety Research Center Toyota


Our partnership with the Toyota CSRC supports safety-focused research. The Mind and Brain Health Labs and the Toyota CSRC are dedicated to using in-vehicle and wearable sensor technologies to detect and prevent risky behavior before it happens. We combine information about an individual's physiology with vehicle data (collected in real time) to create supportive, new technology for at-risk drivers.

Digital Artefacts - Development of advanced, web, mobile and vehicle instrumentation

DA Logo

We collaborate with Digital Artefacts' innovative group of artists, engineers and neuroscientists to develop new technologies for in-vehicle sensor instrumentation and remote monitoring of health and cognition. We have used these advanced systems to study over 1,000 drivers in data sets that span the United States.
