Dr Helen Viner

Director at Enodamus Ltd

Helen is an expert on road pavement surface characteristics and the factors influenced by road/tyre interaction: friction, noise, rolling resistance, splash/spray. 

She has worked extensively on surfacing materials and their relationship to collision risk, authoring the 2004 and 2015 updates of the UK resistance policy and developing the concept of the crash model (used to rank priority of sites with low skid resistance).

In 2018 she established Enodamus Ltd, with a mission to reduce harm from transport and interests in reducing non-exhaust particulate emissions and improving take-up of active modes of travel.


Four years on – the promise of vehicle automation 2020

The Value of Automation in Construction Plant

When the topic of automated vehicles arises, you would be forgiven for thinking of our day to day cars with automatic features, perhaps automated truck convoys and at a push, low-speed autonomous delivery pods being trialled for delivery services in urban areas. The...

The Promise of Vehicle Automation

In June 2016, ITEN Member, Nick Reed took the stage at TEDxReading and addressed why vehicle automation was critical to the future of transportation, described some of the work that was being undertaken to enable automated vehicles to operate on our roads and explored why taking the driver out of the loop may create a whole new set of challenges.
