The Center for Vehicle Systems and Safety (CVeSS) at Virginia Tech was established in 2004 by Dr. Mehdi Ahmadian, J. B. Jones Chair of Mechanical Engineering, and director of CVeSS. The Center consists of two laboratories: the Advanced Vehicle Dynamics Laboratory (AVDL, established 1995) and the Railway Technology Laboratory (RTL, established 2004). The center is served by a large number of faculty members, research scientists, post-doctoral researchers, visiting scholars, graduate students, and undergraduate students who support a diverse portfolio of projects.
Within the center, there are several labs that offer specializations in specific disciplines.
Congratulations to Dr. Ahmadian for being named the J. B. Jones Chair of Mechanical Engineering by the Virginia Tech Board of Visitors!
Railway Technologies Laboratory (RTL) recently received a project from the Association of American Railroads to develop a new generation of Doppler Lidar equipment for track stability evaluation. The project starts from July 2020 and is expected to continue for multiple years.
Congratulations to Dr. Ahmadian for being honored with SAE International/Magnus Hendrickson Innovation Award!
