Invited Speakers

Dr. John Gideon

Dr. John Gideon is a Senior Research Scientist at Toyota Research Institute, whose research focuses on understanding various aspects of the driver state. His prior work has examined the detection of surprise, heart rate, and precise gaze estimates from video. His current work aims to combine driver-facing technology with driving scene understanding to allow for fully context-aware driver intervention systems. John holds a doctorate degree in computer science from the University of Michigan and currently resides in Cincinnati, Ohio.


In recent years, in-cabin human-sensing has become an emerging research topic with the advent of automated driving (AD) and advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS). Key safety-critical problems in automated vehicles as well as manually driven vehicles such as inattention, drowsiness, and driver readiness could be effectively solved by using driver monitoring systems. In addition, looking into the future of Level 3 systems and MaaS (Mobility-as-a-Service), new mobility related services could be offered based on driver/user state and behavior obtained using in-cabin human-sensing systems.

This workshop will bring together researchers in areas including perception, cognition, estimation, machine learning, multi-modal sensing, data analytics, and human-robot/machine/agent interaction. The organizers expect increased industry and government/regulatory research participation to help clarify the challenges, balance the various perspectives, and further the discussions.
