Research Context

​The MobileEngaged project is funded by the Road Safety Trust and involves:

  • collating, enhancing, and sharing approaches from around the UK that seek to address the issue of mobile phone use whilst driving (both legal hands-free and illegal hand-held use);
  • utilising a knowledge exchange methodology whereby innovators are brought together with academic experts to increase the potential for research-informed innovation in the field;
  • collating the information collected into a compendium of innovations for use by the road safety and roads policing community.

Research Methodology

​Knowledge-exchange consultations are held with innovators in this area, where advice and guidance is given based on the expertise of the PI and RA, knowledge of other projects and interventions, and a literature review of relevance to each consultation. Participants are then provided with a summary document containing our suggestions for taking the project forward, evaluation etc.
