CMU Research Truck

http://www.cmu.edu/news/archive/2007/June/june18_datatruck.shtml



Carnegie Mellon University will demonstrate its new Data Truck, a 36-foot mobile social science laboratory that will allow the university to conduct research involving groups of people, such as senior citizens, who cannot readily come to campus. The Data Truck can be used to interview people engaged in real-life situations to study events as they unfold — for example, the effect of exhaustion on marathon runners crossing the finishing line or the effects of alcohol on the judgment of people tailgating outside Heinz Field before a Steelers game.


I like this last example of a study. :)
