    Torsten Fleischer

    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

    Ayako Taniguchi

    Systems and Information Engineering
    University of Tsukuba

    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.

    Bart van Arem

    Transport & Planning
    Delft University of Technology
    The Netherlands

    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.

    He is Editor in Chief of the IEEE Open Journal of Intelligent Transportation Systems.
