Benjamin Afuye, a PhD student at TRI is attending the 10th Applied Human Factors and Ergonomics (AHFE) International Conference 2019 to present a topic that was drafted from his EEG research study title: ‘Road surface roughness and urban buss ride quality in Edinburgh: An EEG approach’.
The summary of his findings is as following:
The study proves that different degrees of pavement roughness causes different levels of vehicular discomfort. The average beta brain activities and eSense meter for attention were found significantly correlated with the pavement types. The average value of the beta brain activity indicates an increase of 12.93µᴠ and 7.09µᴠ for setts and asphalt pavements respectively compared to control conditions.
