Prof. Oguichi, born in Tokyo 1964, graduated Department of Civil Engineering, Faculty of Engineering, the University of Tokyo (UTokyo) in 1988 and got Ph.D from Graduate School of Engineering of UTokyo in 1993. After joining to Nissan Motor Co. Ltd., he moved to Tokyo Metropolitan University, and promoted to Professor in 2007. He moved to Institute of Industrial Science (IIS) of UTokyo in 2011 and assigned to director of Advanced Mobility Research Center (ITS Center) of IIS, UTokyo, in 2018. He is also a member of Mobility Innovation Collaborative Research Center (UTmobI) started in July 2018 in the university, and is in charge of education for the department of civil engineering at UTokyo. His major research field is Traffic Engineering and Traffic Management and Control including advanced traffic signal control, advanced highway network traffic management systems, integrated transport and mobility system design including automated vehicles, harmonized design of infrastructure facilities and hierarchical road transport system. He also serves as the chair of Business Promotion Working Group of Japanese national project SIP-adus (Cross-Ministerial Strategic Innovation Promotion Program in the Innovation of Automated Driving for Universal Services).
Head of Research Group 'Mobility Futures'
Institute for Technology Assessment and Systems Analysis (ITAS)
Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT)
Torsten Fleischer is head of the research group ‘Mobility Futures’ at the Institute for Technology Assessment and Systems Analysis (ITAS), Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). Originally a physicist by training, he is now interested in the interdependence between societal change and technological change especially in the areas of transportation, information and energy technologies, in methodological questions of technology assessment as well as in the governance of innovation processes. Over the years, he served as project manager for several TA studies for ITAS and the Office of Technology Assessment at the German Parliament (TAB).
Ayako Taniguchi is Professor of Risk Engineering at University of Tsukuba, Japan. She has a PhD in Engineering. Her current research objective is to apply psychological strategies to manage social dilemmas concerning urban planning and transportation policy, and research interests include promotion of public transport, traffic injury prevention analysis, and risk communication.
She began working on the social acceptance of autonomous vehicles (AVs) in 2016. She designed and analyzed interview and questionnaire survey with transportation operator and general public in Japan, the UK and Germany. From 2019, she is conducting research on how the automobile has been accepted in Japanese society by applying historical sociology and folklore, analyzing newspapers from the end of the 18th century and television programs from the 1950s. By looking back at this past history, she would like to aim to gain insight into the social acceptance of AVs.
I focus on approaches based on history and folklore to solve traffic problems.

Bart van Arem
Transport & Planning
Delft University of Technology
Bart van Arem is a full professor Transport Modelling at Delft University of Technology, the Netherlands, He is also deputy chair of the department Transport & Planning and director of the TU Delft Transport Institute.
His research focuses on analysing and modelling the implications of intelligent vehicles. Such implications vary from human factors to traffic flow on roads and networks. The research has a strong modelling and simulation component based on empirics wherever possible using our instrument vehicles and driving simulator.
He is the Principal Investigator of the project "Spatial and Transport impacts of Automated Driving" (2016-2021, comprising 30 partners from academia, government and industry. www.stad.tudelft.nl.
He is Editor in Chief of the IEEE Open Journal of Intelligent Transportation Systems. www.ieee-itss.org/oj-its
