Experts Share Insights into Technology Development and Testing

On August 27, Driven to Protect hosted an Ask the Experts webinar where attendees were able to learn more about the work the DADSS Program is doing to develop innovative, in-vehicle technology to help eliminate drunk driving and save lives.

Dr. Bud Zaouk, president and CEO of KEA Technologies explained how his team of independent engineers and scientists are making sure the DADSS technology meets the high standards of durability, accuracy and precision needed for an in-vehicle safety technology. Dr. Scott Lukas of the Harvard Medical School-affiliated McLean Hospital provided insight into the human subject testing that’s being done to ensure that the technology performs consistently in a real-world setting. And Rob Strassburger, president and CEO of Automotive Coalition for Traffic Safety, Inc. discussed the valuable work happening in Virginia to test the technology in vehicles.

After hearing about the rigorous development and testing process that’s gone into preparing the breakthrough technology for eventual consumer use, attendees had the opportunity to ask questions of the experts directly and learn more about the DADSS technology and the work being done in Virginia through Driven to Protect. George Bishop, deputy commissioner of the Virginia DMV, moderated this Q&A with the panel of experts.
