Amanda Pullan

Student Intern
BSc

Amanda is a Callaghan Innovation sponsored student intern at Abley. Amanda is studying for her Masters in Data Science at the University of Canterbury. Amanda has been brought on board to research potential applications of the ‘SafeView’ forward visibility model. She will work with our road safety and data modelling technical leads to research road engineering practices on forward visibility assessment and the requirements for safe overtaking manoeuvres. This will include a literature review of the best practice requirements for installing overtaking lanes, minimum passing distances for different speed environments, the benefits and costs of installing overtaking lanes, and the role of driver frustration in unsafe passing. Her work will help us quantify the benefits of the application for users and demonstrate how it can prevent serious road trauma and reduce the social cost of road crashes.
