"The cars we drive say alot about us."

Nikhil Gowda

 Human - Automation Interaction Expert
 Voice AI and Context Perception Lead

I am an alum of the Center for Design Research at Stanford University, the Fatigue Countermeasures Group at NASA AMES, the MBA in Design Strategy program at California College of the Arts and

the 2006-09 Formula SAE Race Car Design Team.

Ever since I was little, I've loved cars and motorbikes. I've been enthralled by their design, the cogs & the experience. Making my living leading Human Automation Interaction R&D is a dream come true. I'm proud to have collaborated with some of the most talented designers, engineers, academics, philosophers and businessmen in the industry. I strive to keep abreast of the changing mobility needs of individuals and the community. When I succeed, new innovations come to life that improve the user experience through connectivity, access, trust and safety.

I am currently the Technical Lead working on Conversational Voice AI and Context Perception for vehicles of the future at Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance Innovation Lab in Silicon Valley.
