Esko Lehtonen is a cognitive scientist doing research on human factors in transportation. He is interested in how humans interact with automated vehicles, both as drivers as well as pedestrians or cyclists. The goal of the research is to create conceptual and computational models to understand the cognitive processing taking place in the interaction between humans and their environment. The results will help to create safer and more efficient transportation systems. Esko Lehtonen teaches at the Master Program in Automotive Engineering at Chalmers.
