Seeing Machines

Dr Angus McKerral has a doctorate in psychology from the University of Newcastle and has more than seven years of experience researching driver distraction and fatigue.

His doctoral research focused on the relationship between expertise, vehicle automation and driver cognition, and particularly the construction of situation awareness during critical takeovers from highly-automated vehicles.

Dr McKerral’s current research aims to identify novel measures of visual and cognitive distraction with the goal of improving the real-time detection of risky driver states.
