Our research covers both passenger and freight transport whilst examining information technology's role in complementing or substituting transport.

We’re interested in how society influences technological developments in transport, commonly termed 'intelligent transport systems'. We take an inter-disciplinary approach involving engineering, economics and social sciences.

We have expertise in:

  • traffic management and control
  • safety
  • the environment and sustainability
  • bus and rail operations
  • freight and logistics
  • walking and cycling

Our work is funded by:

  • Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC)
  • European Commission 
  • Transport for London 
  • central government
  • local authorities
  • private organisations
