Automotive Research Center

Our mission is to develop modeling and simulation environments for discovering and assessing critical ground vehicle technologies. We focus on problems associated with conversion and management of power and energy within vehicles, mobility and survivability of the complete vehicle system, including the human operator. The Center employs extensive experimental facilities for validation and verification. Our models and simulations are all accompanied by analytical tools to assess optimality, reliability, survivability, and mobility in harsh environments with constrained fuel supplies and over a variety of terrains.
