Visual behaviour in driving simulation: a comparative study of immersive virtual reality and video-screen technologies

Abstract

Dr. Rodrigues started collaborating with Dr. Navarro in 2013 due to mutual interests in understanding the role of the visual information in motor behaviour. Current ongoing projects reveal a great synergy between both research groups suggesting that the UK Academies/CONFAP Research Mobility funding would enable a more stable, productive and long-term sustainable collaboration. To achieve this goal, five research activities were planned to be carried out during the 3-month Dr. Navarro visiting period. The activities include the development of an experimental study, the collaboration in two ongoing projects, organisation and delivery of 3 academic events and a visit to two other institutions in cognate areas culminating in a broader project proposal write-up. As outcome from this project, it is expected the publication of three articles, students and staff skills development including the exchange of at least 1 PhD student and production of a collaborative project proposal targeting 2021 international bids.
