GATEway (Greenwich Automated Transport Environment) is an £8m research project, led by TRL, to understand and overcome the technical, legal and societal challenges of implementing automated vehicles in an urban environment.

Taking place in TRL’s UK Smart Mobility Lab in the Royal Borough of Greenwich, the project will trial and validate a series of different use cases for automated vehicles, including driverless shuttles and automated urban deliveries.

Results will help both industry and policymakers understand the implications of automated vehicles and deliver a safe and validated test environment in the UK, driving job creation and investment in a rapidly emerging technology area.”

Nick joined the Human Factors and Simulation group at TRL in January 2004 following post-doctoral work in visual perception at the University of Oxford and in 2014 became director TRL’s Academy co-ordinating scientific activities across the business. He has led a wide variety of research studies using the full mission, high fidelity car and truck simulators with a number of published articles, conference papers, and appearances in national and international media. Nick also championed work in the area of vehicle automation at TRL, culminating in technical leadership of the GATEway (Greenwich Automated Transport Environment) project – a flagship UK Government project to investigate the implications of the introduction of automated vehicles in the urban environment. In 2015, he was awarded a visiting professorship in the Engineering and Physical Sciences faculty at the University of Surrey.

You will have the opportunity to ask questions and discuss issues with the speaker and others at the end of the evening.
