Annual Meeting (AIM) Special Session and Survey

Help the publications staff and the Editorial Board in determining the future direction of the journals by taking the survey.

The survey is anonymous. It will provide key feedback to help further improve our journals.

Initial results from this survey were shared at the annual meeting in a special session on "Publishing in ASABE Journals and Navigating the Publication Process." We will also share results through publications and news.

Determining the Effectiveness of Mirrors and Camera Systems in Monitoring the Rearward Visibility of Self-Propelled Agricultural Machinery

This study concerned the ability of operators of tractors and other self-propelled agricultural machinery to visually recognize objects and/or hazards within close proximity to the rear of those machines and/or any implements in tow, especially when backing up. It was hypothesized that the data collected would identify the factors affecting rearward visibility and help determine the effectiveness of two backup-assisting devices (i.e., mirrors and camera systems) in enhancing the operator‘s ability to observe objects or hazards.
