PROF.DR. MARIEKE MARTENS

Marieke Martens

After finishing her university education in Cognitive Psychology, Marieke Martens started her carreer at TNO Human Factors in 1996. In the department of Traffic Behaviour her research focuses on driving behaviour, traffic safety, road design, driver support systems and driver state (fatigue, workload, attention, expectations). These studies are part of exploratory research, projects for the Ministry of Transport, European Union, OEMs and service suppliers. She received her PhD degree from the Free University in Amsterdam about the effects of expectations on visual attention and perception in driving. The title of her dissertation is: The failure to act upon important information: Where do things go wrong?

She has been a member of several CROW-working groups and a member of PIARC working group on road tunnels and human factors.

Since 2014, she works as Professor of ITS & Human Factors. Topics include driver support, Human Machine Interaction, cooperative systems, driving simulators, driving behaviour, and traffic safety.
