About Me

Dr.ir. Arie Paul van den Beukel is Assistant Professor at University of Twente and an expert in human factors of automated transport systems. He holds a PhD entitled ‘Driving automation interface design – supporting drivers’ changing role‘ and has MSc-degrees of Industrial Design Engineering and Technology Design, both from Technical University Delft. As a researcher of Human Centered Design of Intelligent Transport Systems his interests are in approaches to raise usability and satisfaction of new mobility means. His work experience is fostered in the automotive industry with former positions at a tier one supplier and car manufacturer. Results of his work are demonstrated in advanced projects with industry and academia. While cooperating in a broad range of HMI-projects for international customers, he contributed to the implementation of a user centred design discipline within the industry’s strategic product development plans. He is involved in national and international research projects and has published over 15 peer reviewed articles.
