Facilitating coexistence, trust-building, and collaboration among people and machines.

New modes of 21st century urban transportation are becoming increasingly lightweight, electrified, connected, shared, and autonomous. Cohabitation of humans and machines is an increasingly important question, and one which requires careful attention and design.  We strive to enable new forms of human-machine co-existence, trust, and collaboration.

This work focuses on enabling:

  1. Intuitive and effective two-way communication between vehicles and pedestrians;
  2. Street safety and traffic-yielding mechanisms; and
  3. Behavior change related to the adoption of active mobility mode, or electric assist.
