Andrew Krum, Senior Research Associate

Center for Truck and Bus Safety: Human Factors and Advanced System Testing

Mr. Andrew Krum, a senior research associate and manager for the Human Factors and Applied Systems Testing Group in VTTI's CTBS since 2013, holds an MSE in Human Factors Engineering from Wright State University (Dayton, Ohio; 2003) and a B.A. in mathematics with minors in physics and psychology from Cedarville University (Cedarville, OH; 2001). Mr. Krum is currently a principal investigator (PI) on the active FMCSA HACV (Highly Automated Commercial Vehicle) Sensor Performance Guidelines and Naturalistic Driving Data Analysis project, in which the research team is investigating a range of vehicle and driver performance benchmarks for future automated Class 8 on-highway trucks. Additionally, Mr. Krum is a principal investigator leading research awarded to the New York City Transit, Department of Buses on the FTA-sponsored Transit Bus Mirror Configuration Safety Research & Development project, which seeks to identify visibility requirements for transit bus mirrors and demonstrate safety and driver acceptance. The research team is tasked to identify mirror design parameters that satisfy optimal mirror visibility and minimal visibility obstructions; deliver make/model agnostic mirror visibility performance guidelines; and determine design effectiveness and driver acceptance on field demonstration mirrors.
