Currently working in the laboratory:

doc. PhDr. Matúš Šucha, Ph.D.


Matúš Šucha is professionally oriented to the issues of traffic psychology and the human factor in traffic, more specifically to the field of sustainable mobility, active transport modes, traffic safety, and urban mobility. He is an accredited coach, traffic psychologist, psychotherapist, Europsy mentor for traffic psychology and forensic expert in the field of traffic psychology. He is a professional guarantor of postgraduate education in the field of traffic psychology at Palacký University in Olomouc. At present, he works at the Department of Psychology, Faculty of Arts, Palacký University in Olomouc, where he develops the Czech School of Traffic Psychology.

RNDr. et RNDr. Ladislav Stanke, Ph.D.


Ladislav Stanke holds two master’s degrees (in Nanotechnology and Digital and Instrumental Optics) and a Ph.D. in Applied Physics. In his theses, he focused on applied optics. From 2018 to 2020, he worked as a Lead Lighting Engineer at HELLA AUTOTECHNIK NOVA. He is interested in the relationship between humans and modern technology. His main focus lies on light and its various aspects and uses. In recent years, he was interested in the topic of visual perception, especially the issue of glare in road traffic, which is why he decided to join forces with the Department of Psychology at the Palacký University in Olomouc. He is a co-author of the design of the HLI laboratory and the individual experiments carried out there. Since March 2020, he has been working at the Czech National e-Health Center (NTMC) within the University Hospital Olomouc. He is also currently preparing for a master’s degree in Biomedical Engineering at VSB-TUO. He is an enthusiastic promoter of open-source, start-up culture and an eternal admirer of the Israeli-style innovative thinking. His main aim is to break down barriers between disciplines and to look for possibilities of interdisciplinary cooperation.

Mgr. Lucie Viktorová, Ph.D.


Lucie Viktorová works as an assistant professor at the Department of Psychology, Faculty of Arts, Palacký University Olomouc, where she focuses on the methodology of scientific research and projects in the field of traffic psychology. Together with Matus Sucha, they examined, for example, the adaptation of drivers to advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS, see here) or, conversely, the experiences of people who gave up using cars (Life without a car project).

She is responsible for the coordination of research, the questionnaires, and their evaluation.

Mgr. Radek Čelechovský, Ph.D.


Radek Čelechovský works part-time as an assistant professor at the Department of Optics, Faculty of Science, Palacký University Olomouc, and partly, he is self-employed. He specializes in the development of electronic devices, simulation of physical processes in a computer, construction of laboratory experiments and their control from a computer, and creation of applications for collection and processing of measurement data. Within the project, he works as an electronics designer and programmer for the development of measurement devices in the laboratory.

Mgr. Tomáš Dominik, Ph.D.


Tomáš Dominik works as an assistant professor at the Department of Psychology, Faculty of Arts, Palacký University Olomouc. His research deals with the issue of will from the perspective of cognitive psychology, psychophysiology, and neurosciences. In his theses, he focused on the question of free will and Libet’s experiment. His current research aims at the sense of agency and neural precursors of motion. Besides that, he cooperates on applied psychophysiological research, e.g. in the field of driver fatigue.
