University of Bath has established a study that is designed to understand the differences in how road users perceive the road environment, and to understand which features are significant to them, based on factors such as the mode of transport they are using, and their demographics
The goal of the study is to build up a library of user-submitted images of good/bad infrastructure and items relating to transport use (e.g., high visibility clothing, features on their vehicles), along with ratings and keywords to describe the significance of them and some demographic information about the submitter.
The images that are submitted will then be used in research to understand how road users experience/perceive existing infrastructure, how modal choices/travel experiences are shaped by the environment, and to identify differences in how infrastructure/road environments are perceived and used by road users.
This information will then feed into academic publications and conference presentations with a focus on better understanding how to manage mixed road user interactions and design safe and equitable transport infrastructure.
