    I received my 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. I had been working for Nissan Motor as a human factors engineer from 1985 till 2012. My research and development in Nissan included ride comfort, car sickness, seating ergonomics, fatigued driving, human machine interfaces, and driver support systems. Between 2012 and 2015, I was a professor in Neurology, University of Iowa, US where I conducted research for safety of older drivers and drivers with medical problems, and also human factors in automated driving. I have been working in AIST as the first Director of Automotive Human Factors Research Center since April 1st 2015. The vision of our Research Center is to establish human-centered methodologies to design vehicles to be safe, comfortable and enjoyable for all drivers. We conduct research in three main fields, support of older drivers, human factors of automated driving, and driving pleasure. Our core competencies are integrative approaches for understanding drivers using behavioral, neurological and physiological measures. I had been also leading SIP HMI Task Force in which potential human factor problems in automated driving were identified and prioritized.
