I am currently a PhD student in Electrical and Computer Engineering of Carnegie Mellon University (CMU). I received my Bachelor degree from Department of Automation, Tsinghua University, China, in 2008.
I am a member of the CMU-GM (General Motor) Autonomous Driving Collaboration Laboratory. My research interest is designing behavior control algorithms and frameworks to improve the autonomous vehicles's intelligence. I am also interested in developing a novel Human-Autonomous Vehicle Interface so that people can cooperate with the vehicle while driving. The goal of my research is to make fully autonomous vehicle: 1) they can understand and taking part in the real human traffic. 2) The driver of the autonomous vehicle can depend on it and cooperate with the vehicle while driving.
Though the autonomous vehicle may be much expensive than normal cars in a long time, it will save people lots of time in transportation. As time is more and more important, autonomous cars will have larger and larger benefits in both safety and time saving.
