New research from MU suggests that modern tech gadgets can result in a reduced number of car crashes. It’s called “collision avoidance technology,” and can vary from eye tracking goggles to motion-capture dash cams.

The goal is to alert drivers when they’re following other cars too closely or drifting into other lanes. But researcher Jung Kim says that the effectiveness of collision avoidance tech added after the car is built can vary depending on which device is being used.

As Wednesday’s rush hour dies down on Interstate 70, Scott Campbell is merging onto the highway.

“Off like a herd of turtles,” he says.

Campbell is with Missouri’s Department of Transportation and he’s spending the night here with the maintenance team to repaint the yellow stripe in the fast lane. The caravan of trucks, with mounted signs, flashing arrows and bright lights, spreads out for more than a mile creeping along at 10 miles per hour. Even all these emblazoned alerts didn’t protect Campbell when was struck by a pickup on the job two weeks ago.
