Amir Hossein Kalantari


I’m a Marie Curie Early Stage Researcher in SHAPE-IT project; I investigate and model interactions between cars/AVs and pedestrians in selected situations. I will also apply these models in computer simulations with the help of Highly Immersive Kinematic Experimental Research (HIKER) pedestrian lab to study how AVs should behave, taking pedestrian intentions and expectations into account. A specific research question of interest is how AVs can achieve efficient progress toward own goals, while at the same time not transgressing human comfort boundaries. My current research interests are behavioural game theory and pedestrian distraction.
