Event Details

Abstract

This seminar will be about PEARL (Person-Environment-Activity Research Laboratory), which is part of the UK Collaboratorium for Research on Infrastructure and Cities (UKCRIC). It is a facility designed to enable fundamental and applied research on the ways in which people interact with infrastructure and cities. This research embraces aspects of civil, environmental and mechanical engineering, instrumentation science and engineering, neurology, psychology, ophthalmology, audiology, orthopaedics, the creative and performing arts, technical and aesthetic design, and humanities such as economics, ethics and philosophy, and it has a large and prominent community engagement activity. PEARL is thus a unique multidisciplinary exploration of how people and the environment co-exist.

Speaker

Professor Nick Tyler is the Director of the UCL Centre for Transport Studies (CTS) and Chadwick Professor of Civil Engineering, and investigates the ways in which people interact with their immediate environments. He set up the Accessibility Research Group within CTS, with a team of researchers investigating many aspects of accessibility and public transport. The group has a total research portfolio of more than £40million for projects directed towards making the world more sympathetic to people's needs and creating a sustainable future for both people and planet, including the PAMELA pedestrian environment laboratory, which is being used to develop models for accessible pedestrian infrastructure, and which is being enhanced as part of the Government's UKCRIC programme, to create a new larger facility called PEARL.
