This thesis explores how automated vehicles will interact with pedestrians in the urban environment through augmented reality technology. Nine distinct AR interfaces were designed, developed, and evaluated to assess how different design elements (symbols, text, colour) and distinct mappings of the AR (on the road, on the vehicle, or head-locked)...

Autonomy in traffic (e.g., autonomous vehicles) could potentially benefit mobility, safety, accessibility and sustainability. However, the realisation of these advancements is highly dependent on how effective these autonomous vehicles interact with vulnerable road users such as pedestrians. Before we can understand how pedestrians will interact...

Introduction: Communication from automated vehicles (AVs) to pedestrians using augmented reality (AR) could positively contribute to traffic safety. However, previous AR research for pedestrians was mainly conducted through online questionnaires or experiments in virtual environments instead of real ones.<br/><br/>Methods: In this study, 28...

Crowding is often analyzed using crowd dynamics variables. Yet, it is questionable whether quantitative variables fully describe the perception of crowdedness. This paper presents four case studies into the Pedestrian Level-of-Service (PLoS), featuring a 1) mass event, 2) shopping environment, 3) festival, and 4) touristic hotspot. The...

Contingency planning, wherein an agent generates a set of possible plans conditioned on the outcome of an uncertain event, is an increasingly popular way for robots to act under uncertainty. In this work we take a game-theoretic perspective on contingency planning, tailored to multi-agent scenarios in which a robot's actions impact the...

With recent advancements in autonomous driving, the demand for precise and accurate perception systems has increased. Perception of the vehicle’s environment is a key element in ensuring safe operation. Due to their wide aperture angle and low cost, ultrasonic sensors are a viable option for achieving close-range 360° perception around the...

Recent technological advancements are revolutionizing last-mile package delivery, with autonomous delivery vehicles (ADVs) emerging as a sustainable alternative. These small ground vehicles autonomously navigate pavements, aiming to operate seamlessly in pedestrian-rich environments without any human intervention. The goal of this project is to...

Since the commercialisation of air travel, demand for air transport is increasing. Optimal system capacity utilisation at airports has therefore become crucial. As available resources such as land, buildings and human are scarce and airline tickets need to be financially affordable, airports optimise their system while maximising capacity within...

Pedestrian tactical choices and operational movement in evacuations essentially pertain to decision-making under risk and uncertainty. However, in microscopic evacuation models, this attribute has been greatly overlooked, even lacking a methodology to delineate the related decision characteristics (bounded rationality and risk attitudes), let...

In the study of pedestrian dynamics, the consideration of group behaviours is essential, as group interaction within crowds is a common phenomenon and significantly influences pedestrian behaviours. This special issue highlights the importance of pedestrian group behaviours and examines the subject using a wide range of methods, such as...

Augmented Reality (AR) technology could be utilised to assist pedestrians in navigating safely through traffic. However, whether potential users would understand and use such AR solutions is currently unknown. Nine novel AR interfaces for pedestrian-vehicle communication, previously developed using an experience-based design method, were...

The operation of automated vehicles (AVs) on shared roads requires attention concerning their interactions with vulnerable road users (VRUs), such as cyclists. This study investigates the safety of cyclists when they interact with an AV and compares it with their interaction with a conventional vehicle. Overall, 29 cyclists participated in a...

Bikesharing is a popular transportation mode for people to commute, for leisurely travel, or for recreation purposes in their daily tasks. Throughout 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic had significant impacts on bikeshare usage in the United States. Previous studies show that the pandemic negatively affected bikeshare activity patterns. To examine the...

Increasing the use of non-motorized modes of transport, such as walking, is a worldwide objective aimed at improving the sustainability of cities. However, pedestrians may not choose to walk if the infrastructure fails to meet their needs or if they hold unfavourable perceptions regarding the built environment (BE). The current study aims to...

Eliciting and capturing drivers' affective responses in a realistic outdoor setting with pedestrians poses a challenge when designing in-vehicle, empathic interfaces. To address this, we designed a controlled, outdoor car driving circuit where drivers (N=27) drove and encountered pedestrian confederates who performed non-verbal positive or...
