The Accessibility Research Group (ARG) is a multi-disciplinary research team that conducts​ interdisciplinary research into accessibility.

The objective of ARG is to make the world accessible to everyone. We aim to understand how people navigate their environment during everyday activities, and how poor design of transport systems could be improved to provide accessible systems that enable everyone to achieve their full potential.
ARG was set up and is directed by Nick Tyler CBE. ARG is home to:
  • PAMELA        - a multisensory pedestrian environment laboratory studying human interactions with infrastructure;
  • PEARL​​    ​      - an enhanced and extended version of the PAMELA facility (PDF);​​
  • UCL-squared  - the Universal Composition Laboratory at UCL;
  • ARGnote       - a two page note that explains key research findings from the UCL Accessibility Research Group.
