We have projects with several members of this group.

Natsha Merat is CoI on the HAROLD project. That is an investigation of driver distraction and pedestrian conspicuity. Natasha is conducting trials with her driving simulator in parallel to our studies with a scale model.

Robin Lovelace is CoI on the SATURN project. At Sheffield we are measuring the impact of lighting on cyclist numbers: Robin will integrate those data in his models for increasing the uptake of active travel.

We are working on applications for further funding about pedestrian reassurance with Caroline Mullens.

Lund University

Lighting for pedestrians – how to measure the effect of lighting on our evaluations of other people.

Currently co-supervising a PhD student project at Lund investigating social interactions between pedestrians in public squares.
