Research Interests/Areas of Expertise/Responsibilities
Mark Gilbert is an Electronics Engineer Lead at the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute in the Engineering Systems Group. At UMTRI, Mr. Gilbert has primarily been involved in instrumenting vehicles for large-scale field operational tests of safety systems on both heavy truck and passenger car fleets. In addition, he has been responsible for the operation of the light-vehicle fleet data acquisition and safety systems monitoring system health, diagnosing and resolving issues, and contributing to the data analysis tasks. His efforts also include a data acquisition system for monitoring the driving behavior of subjects with early stage dementia, a hardware-in-the-loop simulator for the evaluation of heavy truck braking and stability control systems, a self-guided road profile measuring vehicle, and a machine vision based intersection monitoring system for determining vehicle trajectories. Recently, much of Mr. Gilbert’s work has focused on the development of data acquisition systems for automated vehicle research and assessment.
