Early lab scale demonstration

A TRL is a measure to indicate the matureness of a developing technology. When an innovative idea is discovered it is often not directly suitable for application. Usually such novel idea is subjected to further experimentation, testing and prototyping before it can be implemented. The image below shows how to read TRL’s to categorise the innovative ideas.

It will help to reduce road accidents, traffic jam, fuel emissions. It explores human interaction with highly automated driving and the effects on traffic flow.


Driving simulator experiments, eye tracking monitoring, control authority transition, traffic flow modelling, human machine interface design, public acceptance


By 2020, many people believe that highly automated driving will be on the public roads. This research will deliver a novel Human Machine Interaction to improve driving conditions and safety while driving in automated mode and it will also predict the effects on traffic flow.
