Prof. Nick Reed

Founder, Reed Mobility

Prof. Nick Reed has worked at the cutting edge of transportation research for more than fifteen years. From early studies using driving simulators to examine driver behaviour, he has since been instrumental in connected and automated vehicle projects in the UK to the value of more than £50m, including leadership of the GATEway project in Greenwich and the creation of London’s Smart Mobility Living Lab. Nick was Academy Director at TRL (the UK’s Transport Research Laboratory) before becoming Head of Mobility R&D at Bosch, the world’s largest automotive supplier. He has since founded Reed Mobility – an independent expert consultancy on future mobility topics working across the public, private and academic sectors to deliver transport systems that are safe, clean, efficient, ethical and equitable and including projects for the European Commission, DfT, TfL, BSI and RSSB. Nick is also a trustee of the road safety charities Brake and RoadSafe and a non-executive director of FISITA, the international association for mobility engineers.
