Biography

Dr Grégoire Larue is a Senior Research Fellow at CARRS-Q and leads the Intelligent Transport Systems theme within CARRS-Q. He holds a Doctorate of Philosophy from QUT, a Master of Science from UQ (mathematics) and a Master of Engineering from the Ecole Centrale de Lyon (France).

Background

Grégoire joined QUT and CARRS-Q in February 2006 for his PhD research on “Driver vigilance on monotonous roads”. The project involved driving simulations and mathematical modelling of changes in driver behaviour on monotonous roads. He graduated from his PhD in 2010. Ever since, he has been employed as a researcher by CARRS-Q. He has been working on a variety of projects for the CRC for Rail Innovation, the Australasian Centre for Rail Innovation, ARC Linkage projects and other commercial research, always with a focus on evaluating how drivers react to new technology interventions.

Research interests

Grégoire has been involved in Road Safety since 2006, in the field of Intelligent Transport Systems and their effects on driver behaviour. He has applied his expertise particularly to the interface between rail and road (railway level crossings). His current main interests are:

  • ITS (intelligent transportation systems)
  • Railway level crossings
  • Evaluations of new interventions
  • Driver behaviour modelling
  • Driving simulation
  • Field and naturalistic data collection
  • Traffic simulation
