About Us

 Our lab (AVEC) has been developing control, sensing, and safety algorithms for autonomous /automation mobile machines and systems that include construction equipment, agriculture systems, automobiles, mechatronic systems, etc. AVEC lab has also conducted several government and industrial R&D projects in energy-saving for electro-hydraulic (EH) systems and reliability engineering for mechanical systems and components.

 The projects in progress include the development of control and sensing algorithms for autonomous operations of an excavator, predictive safety algorithms for an excavator using 3D sensory information, environmental monitoring algorithms under harsh conditions, snowplow route optimization, etc.

   For detailed info on the lab projects, please refer to the research areas.
