Experimental Driving Course
The research possibilities of the Institute of Experimental Psychology are not limited to indoor laboratory studies. Field studies can be conducted using IXPs closed test circuit particularly suitable for driving experiments. Real driving trials can be carried out at a private property area, which has been former military location including barracks and connecting roads. The track is situated 20 km west of Dortmund.
The total driving course length is about 1.5 kilometres. Further buildings with multiple rooms and washing/changing facilities will serve as a location to host supervisors and participants during trial. It might also be used for living lab studies, pre- and post-processing of the data collected and as a place of storage for important equipment.
