Dr Diane Cleij researches human-machine interaction in relation to automated vehicles. She investigates interactions between driver and vehicle as well as between different traffic participants. She works on, amongst others, the European project MEDIATOR and is project leader of the line of research into interaction between automated vehicles and other road users.
Diane received her master’s degree in 2014 from the Faculty of Aerospace Engineering at the Delft University of Technology. Her PhD work took place at the Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics in Germany, in collaboration with the Delft University of Technology. In 2020 she completed her PhD thesis The prediction of perceived motion cueing quality in driving simulators.
