Monash University researchers seek Melbourne cyclists for passing distance study

by CyclingTips

Researchers from Monash University, in partnership with the Amy Gillett Foundation, are seeking Melbourne cyclists for a study into minimum passing distances using on-bike sensors. The ‘Minimum Passing Distance Study’ aims to quantify the distance that cyclists are passed by motorists.

Eligible participants will have their bicycle fitted with video cameras and a distance sensor; this sensor will measure the passing distance of motorists as riders undertake their usual cycling in Melbourne.

Potential participants will need to complete a brief survey to determine their eligibility.
