Dr. Yang Hu
, Assistant Professor of Electrical Engineering, received a CAREER award from the National Science Foundation
for his research on Rethinking the Architectures and Systems for Autonomous Driving Infrastructure
. The $508,339 project aims to redesign the way driving works: from a single-body car-based platform to a networked multi-object system where competencies interact among cars and surrounding resources via the state-of-the-art computing and communication technologies. The project can also benefit many other application domains, such as Augmented Reality/Virtual Reality and industrial Internet of Things.
