BATT CAVE Electrifying Experts: Amir Ghasemi

Categories: General News

Assistant Professor of Mechanical Engineering Amir Ghasemi has long looked at engineering from the inside out. In the case of autonomous vehicles, however, an objective view from the outside in is equally important. His ability to look both ways is evident in the specialized expertise he brings to BATT CAVE.

Amid a growing focus on autonomous vehicles, he emphasizes the need for meticulous examination of their influence on traffic, particularly when coexisting with human-powered vehicles. “I’m devising traffic management strategies for advanced networks that include a mix of autonomous and human-driven vehicles,” he said. “Crucial to strategically mitigating traffic congestion is crafting learning-enabled algorithms that model potential interactions among the various types of vehicles sharing the road at a given time.”
