Michiel Christoph, MSc, has extensive experience with collecting and analysing Naturalistic Driving data with research focused on distracted driving. Currently, he is the technical coordinator of the project MEDIATOR, that focuses on optimal coordination between human drivers and (partly) autonomous vehicle systems. In addition, Michiel is presently the project leader of the line of research that focuses on the effects of ADAS on driving performance and collision risk.
Earlier, Michiel was involved in several European Naturalistic Driving projects. In the project INTERACTION he coordinated the field tests in seven European countries and in the project UDRIVE he coordinated the development of technology.
