Biography

Dr Ronald Schroeter completed his PhD at the Urban Informatics Research Lab, QUT, in 2012, during which he developed the award-winning “Discussions In Space,” a fun, fast-paced, short-text platform for public urban screens and mobile phones that facilitates public civic engagement, collective expression and public discourse among (particularly young) local citizens.

He is currently a Senior Research Fellow at the Centre for Accident Research and Road Safety – Queensland (CARRS-Q), QUT (Brisbane, Australia). His research focus is the design of innovative driving experiences that make transport by car or bike more fun and safe. This work allows him to embrace multidisciplinary research across HCI/HMI, psychology and road safety.

He has led and won several ARC competitive grants, including a prestigious Discovery Early Career Researcher Award (DECRA), an ARC Discovery on intention awareness in autonomous cars, and an ARC Linkage with industry partners where he explores using Augmented Reality to influence driver states. He currently leads all HMI related activities of the iMove project No:1-002 “Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems (C-ITS) Pilot – Field Operational Test (FOT) and Evaluation”. Lastly, he’s a regular active program committee member and co-chair in various roles at the International ACM Conference on Automotive User Interfaces and Interactive Vehicular Applications.
