Design and Research of Vehicle Laboratory

The Design and Research of Vehicle Laboratory is a part of the School of Mechanical Engineering at University of Science and Technology Beijing. This lab focuses on advanced design theory, dynamic system, and intelligent control, and their applications on Road and Off-road vehicles.

The group is led by Prof. Wenming Zhang. Our research interests are mainly in three domains: (1) Innovative design of mechanical system; (2) Development, modelling and control of advanced powertrain system; and (3) Perception, decision and control for autonomous vehicles.Our researches successfully obtained supports by the National Key Research and Development Project, National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC), National High-tech R&D Program of China (863 Program), and National Key Technology Support Program. We also maintain collaborations with CRRC, BGRIMM, NHL, XCMG and other famous domestic enterprises. Our group has achieved a series of important research results and peer-reviewed publications publicly available through this website.Our group were awarded several prizes for scientific research and education, including 1) one Second Class Prize of National Progression Award, 2) one First Class Prize of Provincial Progression Award, 3) one Second Class Prize of National Higher Education Teaching Achievement Award, and 4) First Class Prize of Smart Car Competition of College Students supervised by group faculties.
