Profile

Alice has an undergraduate degree in Biology, following which she completed a masters degree in Ergonomics. Alice is currently a PhD student at Loughborough University in the Transport Safety Research Centre (TSRC). Alice’s PhD focuses on the communication from Connected and Automated Vehicles (CAVs) to Powered Two Wheelers (PTWs). PTWs are an already overlooked vulnerable road user, combined with range of variable and unique behaviours, they prove a challenge to current assistive systems and future CAVs. A way to standardise interactions and behaviour between CAVs and PTWs is to ensure effective and safe indications of a CAV’s intentions to a PTW. The aim of Alice’s PhD is to assess current explicit and implicit indications of driver’s intentions, in order to create safe effective communications from a CAV, especially when PTWs are in high accident risk situations and engaging in unique behaviours.
