This panel is supported by ACM SIGCHI. ACM SIGCHI also supports participation of our Auto-UI Global Fellows.
Dr Ronald Schroeter completed his PhD at the Urban Informatics Research Lab, QUT, in 2012, during which he developed the award-winning “Discussions In Space,” a fun, fast-paced, short-text platform for public urban screens and mobile phones that facilitates public civic engagement, collective expression and public discourse among (particularly young) local citizens.
He is currently a Senior Research Fellow at the Centre for Accident Research and Road Safety – Queensland (CARRS-Q), QUT (Brisbane, Australia). His research focus is the design of innovative driving experiences that make transport by car or bike more fun and safe. This work allows him to embrace multidisciplinary research across HCI/HMI, psychology and road safety.
He has led and won several ARC competitive grants, including a prestigious Discovery Early Career Researcher Award (DECRA), an ARC Discovery on intention awareness in autonomous cars, and an ARC Linkage with industry partners where he explores using Augmented Reality to influence driver states. He currently leads all HMI related activities of the iMove project No:1-002 “Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems (C-ITS) Pilot – Field Operational Test (FOT) and Evaluation”.
Yong Gu JI received his bachelor's degree and master's degree from Seoul National University and his Ph.D. in 2001 from Purdue University with Ergonomics and HCI. He has been engaged in research and education as a professor since 2002 and is currently at Yonsei University. Since 2002, he has been conducting various researches on Ergonomics and HCI. His research interests include driver behavior in autonomous vehicles, driver complexity in visual information and device control, and UX on the smart device.
Research Scientist, Intel Corporation
Ignacio Alvarez is a Senior Research Scientist at the Autonomous Driving Research Lab in Intel Labs where he develops, Software, System Architectures and Simulation Tools to accelerate the adoption of safe automated driving technologies. Previous to Intel, Ignacio worked for 8 years at BMW leading R&D and product development for Advanced Driver Assistance Systems, Vehicle Telematics Services and User Interface Solutions in Europe, America and Asia. Ignacio received his International PhD in Computer Science from University of the Basque Country (Spain) and Clemson University (USA) in 2011, M.S. in Media Computer Science in Offenburg University (Germany) and B.S. in Communication Sciences from Burgos University (Spain). Ignacio’s research is focused on the development of intelligent connected automated vehicles that augment human mobility with safer and more enjoyable experiences.
The other panel members to be announced soon!
When: Tuesday 24 September 2019
The automotive domain will experience many radical changes over the coming years, such as the introduction of semi-automated vehicles, mobility as a service, and the development of smart cities. These and other changes will affect human-car interaction dramatically. The implications on for example legislation and road design are substantial. Unfortunately, the discussions (and actions) with respect to these themes are slower than technological progress. Therefore, this year Auto-UI provides a platform to discuss how governments, together with industry and academia, prepare themselves for current and future developments in the Auto-UI field. The panel will consist of members from government, industry, and academia and will provide and discuss together and with the audience their perspectives on Auto-UI research.
Example questions and themes that will be discussed are:
This panel is supported by Rijkswaterstaat, the Dutch Traffic Authority.
Human Factors & Crash Avoidance
Transport Canada, Canada
Principal advisor on traffic management at Rijkswaterstaat
Rijkswaterstaat (Dutch Traffic Authority), The Netherlands
Serge van Dam is principal advisor on traffic management for the Dutch national road authority. His main focus is preparing the national road network for the deployment of automated and connected mobility. He is co-chairing the CEDR working group on connecting and automated driving and is highly involved in national and European policy-making.
