Elizabeth (Eli) Machek is a Community Planner in the Technology Innovation and Policy Division of the USDOT Volpe National Transportation Systems Center. Eli joined the Volpe Center in 2003 and has experience in transportation planning and policy analysis, with applications in areas including automation, alternative transportation, parking management, accessibility, and intelligent transportation systems. She manages automation research projects for the Federal Transit Administration, Intelligent Transportation Systems Joint Program Office (ITS JPO), and the Office of the Under Secretary for Policy.
Eli was selected as a member of the 14th class of Maureen and Mike Mansfield Fellows, spending a year embedded in the Japanese Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport, and Tourism; local government offices; and Tokyo Metro. Ms. Machek holds a Master in City Planning from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
Dr. Steven Shladover has been researching road vehicle automation systems for 45 years, beginning with his masters and doctoral theses at M.I.T. He was the Program Manager, Mobility at the California PATH Program of the Institute of Transportation Studies of the University of California at Berkeley until his retirement in November 2017. He led PATH’s pioneering research on automated highway systems, including its participation in the National Automated Highway Systems Consortium from 1994-98, and has continued research on fully and partially automated vehicle systems since then. This work has included definition of operating concepts, modeling of automated system operations and benefits, and design, development and testing of full-scale prototype vehicle systems. His target applications have included cooperative adaptive cruise control, automated truck platoons, automated buses and fully-automated vehicles in an automated highway system.
Dr. Shladover joined the PATH Program in 1989, after eleven years at Systems Control, Inc. and Systems Control Technology, Inc., where he led the company’s efforts in transportation systems engineering and computer-aided control engineering software products. He chaired the Transportation Research Board Committee on Intelligent Transportation Systems from 2004-2010, and currently chairs the TRB Committee on Vehicle-Highway Automation. Dr. Shladover leads the U.S. delegation to ISO/TC204/WG14, which is developing international standards for “vehicle-roadway warning and control systems”.
Director, Automotive Human Factors Research Center
Dr. Kitazaki received his Bachelor’s degree and Master’s degree of engineering from Kyoto University Japan in 1983 and 1985 respectively, and Ph.D. from the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science, University of Southampton, UK in 1995. He had been working for Nissan Motor as a human factors engineer from 1985 till 2012. His research and development in Nissan included human vibration and ride comfort, car sickness, seating ergonomics, fatigued driving, human machine interfaces, and driver support systems. Between 2012 and 2015, Dr. Kitazaki was a professor in Neurology, University of Iowa, US, where he conducted research for safety of older drivers and drivers with medical problems, and also human factors in automated driving. He has been working in AIST as the first Director of Automotive Human Factors Research Center since April 1st 2015. The vision of his Research Center is to establish human-centered methodologies to design vehicles to be safe, comfortable and enjoyable for all drivers. The researchers are conducting research in three main fields; support of older drivers, human factors in automated driving and driving pleasure based on their core competencies, which are integrative approaches to understanding of drivers using behavioral, cognitive, neurological and physiological measures. Dr. Kitazaki also has been the leader of SIP-adus Human Factors research project which started in 2016 as a three-year project by a consortium with two universities and a supplier.
