Dr Richard Roebuck

Dr Richard Roebuck worked with the Transportation Research Group, Cambridge Vehicle Dynamics Consortium, and subsequently the Centre for Sustainable Road Freight for the period from 1998 till 2015, both as a doctoral and a postdoctoral researcher.

Richard worked on a range of research and implementation projects on heavy goods vehicles, including: semi-active damping, active roll control, trailer rear wheel steering at low and high speed, and in particular long combination vehicle rear wheel steering, of B-doubles and A-dolly combinations.
