    Traffic Psychology

    Coordination of perception and action

    In the field of traffic psychology, we are mainly interested in the coordination of perception and action. A major topic is the perception of hazards, and the question of how experts might differ from novices. Furthermore, we evaluated the extent to whichtraffic-related oculomotor routines might be trainable. We cooperate with two research institutions here in Würzburg, namely the IZVW and the WIVW. Within these co-operations, we address the issue of multitasking in traffic situations, the processing of warning signals, automated driving etc.
