"Connected Transportation: Realizing the Vision"
Robert C. Johns, Director and Associate Administrator
Volpe, The National Transportation Systems Center
Research and Innovative Technology Administration
U.S. Department of Transportation

Short bio: Robert C. Johns serves as associate administrator and director of the U.S. Department of Transportation's John A. Volpe National Transportation Systems Center, a unique fee-for-service federal organization that conducts nearly $265 million in annual research and innovation projects for its customers, including all the DOT modal administrations and other federal and state agencies.
In his role as Volpe director, Johns has expanded outreach programs to the Center's many customers, calling for their ideas on how Volpe can best address the nation's transportation challenges. This has led to new and expanded sponsored research and innovation programs, including analysis and modeling for improving the Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) standards, technical assistance and oversight for high speed rail projects, development of transit safety management systems, and expanded research for the NextGen air traffic control system. Approximately 570 federal employees and 450 on-site contractors carry out these and other research programs at Volpe. (Full bio here)

"Why automated vehicles need to be connected vehicles?"
Dr. Steven Shladover, Program Leader,
California PATH/ITS Berkeley

Short bio: Dr. Steven Shladover is the Program Manager, Mobility at the California PATH Program of the Institute of Transportation Studies of the University of California at Berkeley.He joined the PATH Program in 1989, after eleven years at Systems Control, Inc. and Systems Control Technology, Inc., where he led the company’s efforts in transportation systems engineering (including development of the roadway-powered electric vehicle) and computer-aided control engineering software products.Dr. Shladover received all of his degrees in mechanical engineering, with a specialization in dynamic systems and control, from M.I.T., where he began conducting research on vehicle automation in 1973.He has been active in ASME (former Chairman of the Dynamic Systems and Control Division), SAE (ITS Division) and the Transportation Research Board (Chairman of the Committee on Intelligent Transportation Systems from 2004-2010, and member of the Committee on Vehicle-Highway Automation from its founding until 2010), and was the chairman of the Advanced Vehicle Control and Safety Systems Committee of the Intelligent Transportation Society of America from its founding in 1991 until 1997.Dr. Shladover leads the U.S. delegation to ISO/TC204/WG14, which is developing international standards for “vehicle-roadway warning and control systems”.

Safer and Better Driving with Mobile Sensing
Prof. Hari Balakrishnan,
Head of the Networks and Mobile Systems group at CSAIL
Massachusetts Institute of Technology

Short bio: Hari Balakrishnan is the Fujitsu Professor of Computer Science and a Director of MIT's Center for Wireless Networks and Mobile Computing (Wireless@MIT). His research is in networked computer systems, with current interests in networking, data management, and sensing for a world of truly mobile devices. He is an ACM Fellow, a Sloan Fellow, and an ACM dissertation award winner; he has received many best-paper awards, including the IEEE Bennett Prize and the SIGCOMM "Test of Time" award. He is a founder of Cambridge Mobile Telematics, and before that co-founded StreamBase Systems (acquired by TIBCO), advised Meraki Networks (acquired by Cisco) from its founding days, and worked at Sandburst Corporation (acquired by Broadcom). He received a PhD from UC Berkeley and a B.Tech. from IIT Madras.
