Engineering Systems

The Engineering Systems Group provides leadership for research that addresses engineering systems and human-machine interactions related to motor vehicles and driver interaction. The group serves as a collaborative research partner based on its world-class capabilities in data architecture and data-analysis techniques. ESG's research is geared primarily toward 1) generating and using new knowledge regarding the dynamics of the driving process, and 2) conceptualizing and fabricating novel engineering measurement and control systems. Specifically, ESG researchers apply system-dynamics theory, experiments, models, and simulations to study ground vehicles and the interaction of vehicles with drivers, roadways, and the driving environment including cooperative vehicle-highway systems
