I will be defending my Ph.D. dissertation titled "An experimental approach into the quantification of steering and balance behaviour of bicyclists" on Tuesday 15th September 2020 at 12.30-13:30 h in the Senaatszaal of the TU Delft Aula. Prior to the defense, at 12.00 h, I will give a brief presentation about my research. I invite my family and friends to join the event via: https://www.facebook.com/events/1012404512534541 (I decided FB since there are no time or participants limitations for the mobile version)
The aim of this thesis is to derive bicycle rider control models, based on experimental data, that mimic the rider in his balance control task at various forward speeds. These rider control models can help to understand bicycle falls and crashes, predict cyclist motions necessary for vehicle to vehicle safety systems, and can guide towards the design of a bicycle with active balance control.
