Smart car research

Next generation cars will offer a more sustainable and safe transportation experience. This will be enabled through advances in power train technology (hybrid and full electric),  lightweight body structure, information and communication technology for full intra/inter control leading to autonomous driving.

In our lab, we are working in several areas:

  • electrical vehicles, charging infrastructure models, integration with the electrical grid
  • battery management systems
  • in-vehicle networks and buses (wireless and power line)
  • vehicular wireless communications
  • wireless localization technology and navigation
