Dr Arun Ulahannan is a Research Fellow within the Institute for Future Transport and Cities at Coventry University and used eye tracking within his engineering doctorate. Arun tells us that he knew quite early on in his career, that the human factors space was the ideal location for him, having both engineering and design interests. He refers to key influential supervisors, the benefits of internships and gives insight into his research to date. This includes his current project on understanding the feasibility of electrifying taxis, from a taxi driver experience and public viewpoint; and his engineering doctorate studying semi-automated vehicles, in collaboration with Jaguar Land Rover, to provide information on design guidelines for an interface to maintain driver engagement.
