Huei Peng, the Roger L. McCarthy Professor, gave the Nyquist Lecture at the 2018 ASME Dynamic Systems and Control Conference in Atlanta, Georgia. His talk was titled "How Control Theories Were Used to Improve Energy and Safety of Automotive systems."
Abstract: Tomorrow’s vehicles will be more electrified, connected, automated, and shared compared with vehicles today. Modeling and control will continue to play a key role in making these vehicles safer, more efficient, and less polluting. In this talk, I will present my personal experience in applying advanced modeling and control techniques to several automotive applications, to improve their safety and energy consumption. The talk will end with future trends and remaining challenges.
Peng is also the US Director of the US-China Clean Energy Research Center-Clean Vehicle Consortium and the U-M MCity Director.
