Our expertise and resources support research using simulation techniques to advance the development of connected mobility.

Modelling, Simulation and Interactive Visualisation techniques involve abstract mathematical representations of a system's behaviour through approaches that allow testing changes in functionality, components and interactions such as human response to autonomous driving.

We endeavour to conduct research based on truly representative models of systems that show how alternative conditions can affect their functionality and behaviour, for example the impact of driverless cars on human safety.


Our research benefits from advanced methodologies for modelling and simulation,  interactive visualisation facilities (including augmented and virtual reality) and the application of state-of-the-art techniques to analyse, understand and predict communication exchanges between connected autonomous systems, people and the environment.‌
