Mobile Research Unit

We are expanding our horizons with our new mobile research unit (MRU). This custom-fitted Citroën Relay van brings us into contact with parts of the community that otherwise we just would not meet.

Using eye-tracking equipment

Fitted with a range of professional equipment, our new vehicle gives an extra dimension to our visits to schools and colleges. Not only can we explain to students about what psychologists do, they can now hop inside and find out for themselves!

The vehicle also gives valuable support to our research work. Now we can visit volunteers at their place of work, for example. It's much more convenient for them - and we can get more testing done in a shorter time. The photo shows one of our very first volunteers taking part in research on visual perception.
