Using smart technologies to understand travellers and drivers' cognitive loads

This work focuses on exploring one's travel behaviours and choices, his/her cognitive loads and different complexity of road interactions.

Using VR technologies, and real life observations, and biometric sensors, we will explore how on different road users' interaction and cognitive loads, would trigger different behavioural reactions. In particular, we will focus on e-scooter users and remote driving for professional truck driver (the later one will be carried out in collaboration with KTH ITRL). The output of these experiments will help us to revisit the current transport planning and urban design guidelines, and also guideline on how shall we operate such remote driving activities from drivers' cognitive loads perspectives.
