WELCOME TO THE AUTOMATED DRIVING LAB

The Automated Driving Lab at the Ohio State University focuses on research on connected and automated driving at both higher speed highway driving and lower speed urban driving in a smart city. The Automated Driving Lab is a newly formed lab (2015) that operates under the Center for Automotive Research and follows the tradition of Mekar Labs dating back to 1997. Vehicle dynamics modeling, validation, simulation and control; development of advanced driver assistance systems; hardware-in-the-loop system development; cooperative mobility and automated driving form the main research expertise of the lab. We offer a full research solution for the automotive industry starting with model in the loop simulation and ending in road testing in the Transportation Research Center. We use a modular and scalable approach of automating and working with research vehicles ranging from small smart city personal mobility units all the way to trucks.
