CECS showcases vehicle-centric research

8/25/2017

The event brought together over a dozen faculty members to showcase their research in the areas of autonomous/connected vehicles, vehicle electronics, and cybersecurity.

On Thursday, July 27, the College of Engineering and Computer Science (CECS) welcomed members from local industry for a “Demo Day” of the college’s vehicle-centric research.

Organized by Profs. Sridhar Lakshmanan and Paul Richardson, the event brought together over a dozen faculty members to showcase their research in the areas of autonomous/connected vehicles, vehicle electronics, and cybersecurity. Two dozen student researchers, including four undergraduates, joined to highlight their contributions to this exciting area of research.

In his opening remarks, Dean Tony England stressed the college’s goal of building engineering programs around the concept of “design, build, test”. The new Engineering Lab Building (ELB), which will begin construction early next year, will serve as the primary space for engineering classrooms and teaching labs and its design will embrace those concepts.

[UM-Dearborn] is really where it’s really developed, where it’s figured out, where the strides are made from a theoretical and a scientific standpoint, to get it on the road.
