|Official Title||Associate Professor|
|Affiliation||Intelligent mechanics/mechanical system|
|Profile|| My research topics are dynamic systems and control related on autonomous driving and automotive human factors. Regarding autonomous driving, I study on truck platooning systems particularly. To reduce the amount of CO2 emission, the establishment of the techniques for the autonomous eco-driving of heavy-duty trucks and platooning to reduce their large air resistance in highway driving is needed. Truck platooning is an effective solution to the problem of driver shortages in the future of Japan. Therefore, we proposed new control methods for the lateral and longitudinal direction of heavy-duty trucks. The experimental results of autonomous driving and platooning show the effectiveness of the proposed method.
Social acceptance is important for the practical application of autonomous driving systems. The affinity with the system driver is also important. I study on social acceptability in autonomous driving using a driving simulator, Human Machine Interface for autonomous driving, Next-generation compact mobility and advanced driver assistance systems that use autonomous driving technology.
I study on autonomous driving technology and cooperation between people and systems.
