  • Biography:

    Klaus Bengler graduated in psychology at the University of Regensburg in 1991 and received his PhD in 1995 in cooperation with BMW at the Institute of Psychology (Prof. Dr. Zimmer. After his PhDhe was active on topics of software ergonomics and evaluation of human-machine interfaces. He investigated the influence of additional tasks on driving performance in several studies within EMMIS EU project and in contract with BMW. Multifunctional steering wheels, touch screens and ACC-functionality are examples for the topics of these investigations. In 1997 he joined BMW. From several projects he is experienced with experimental knowledge and experience with different kind of driving simulators and field trials. At BMW he was responsible for the HMI project of the MOTIV program, a national follow on the program of PROMETHEUS. Within BMW Research and Technology he was responsible for projects on HMI research and leader of the usability lab. Since May 2009 he is head of the Institute of Ergonomics at Technische Universität München which is active in research areas like digital human modeling, human robot cooperation, driver assistance HMI and human reliability. He is leading the German Standardization Group (FAKRA) AK-10 "Mensch als Fahrzeugführer" and is active member of ISO TC22 SC13 WG8 „Road vehicles - Ergonomic aspects of transport information and control systems“ as well as member of VDI working group "Menschliche Zuverlässigkeit". He is member of the working group Research of the Round Table Automated Driving (BMVI) and is project leader of the project column Human Factors in Traffic in the German Research Initiative UR:BAN funded by BMWi..
