Personal profile

Research profile

As a part of his Ph.D. research, Dey is working on the human factors of vehicle automation. His research focuses on understanding the nature of the interaction between vehicles and other road users in the present scenario of human-driven vehicles of today, and investigating how these interactions can be facilitated or augmented for autonomous vehicles of tomorrow. This work is a part of the i-Cave project and addresses the communication between autonomous vehicles and surrounding traffic participants (pedestrians, bicyclists, and drivers of non-automated vehicles).  

In this work, design-driven research is crucial since multiple concepts and prototypes are required to be developed and tested to validate theories and come up with practical and viable solutions. The goal of his research is to come up with scalable solutions that enable road users to interact with autonomous vehicles with trust and confidence.

Academic background

Debargha (Dave) Dey obtained his master's degree in Computer Science at Vanderbilt University in the United States, and worked as a Software Engineer before gradually transitioning into the fields of User Experience, User-Centred Design, Human-Computer Interaction, and Human Factors, and returning to academia. He earned his PDEng (Professional Doctorate in Engineering) degree in User-System Interaction from the Eindhoven University of Technology in 2017. Since 2016, Dey is pursuing a Ph.D. in the Department of Industrial Design.
