The Eye, The Brain and The Auto

9th Biennial World Research Congress on Vision and Driving

December 6-8, 2020

Hotel St. Regis, Detroit, MI

Impact of Disruptive Technology Enabling Autonomous Mobility on Healthcare


The 8th The Eye, The Brain and The Auto planning committee seeks high quality abstracts describing original, where possible unpublished, research results.

We invite your submission of:

Abstracts related to the original direction of previous The Eye, The Brain and The Auto congresses on the relationship between vision and the safe operation of a motorized vehicle.


  • Abstracts related to physiologic data sensing and collecting that the vehicle may be capable of gathering to the advantage of the occupant(s) and society.

  • Please think beyond alcohol vapor demobilization of the vehicle and narcolepsy detection.

  • Abstracts outlining unique capabilities or opportunities autonomous vehicle technology might present that you wish to explore.

  • Please think beyond the obvious capability of conveying the blind to their doctors’ offices.

  • Abstracts from within the auto (human transportation) industry postulating questions that re- searchers in human sciences, or health care, or human physiology might address.

  • Please think beyond the challenges related to touch screen instrument panels for the visually impaired or the physically handicapped occupant.

  • Abstracts related to research you have already accomplished, or will have completed by next October, and will be ready to present.


The 2018 Congress will be held October 7-9, 2018 at the Motor City Casino Hotel in Detroit, MI. In 1929, the world called our city Detroit the Dynamic. The recent decade resurrection of the central city makes that approbation legitimate once again!


If this Congress intrigues you, the sooner you display your interest as a possible participant or your intention to submit an abstract the greater are your chances of a slot as a Panel Presenter.

February 1, 2018 Abstract submission entry opens
