About Us

Welcome The Future Mobility Lab website! Our lab, founded by Professor Francis Assadian, studies modeling, simulation, and control of dynamic systems. Some of our focuses are: bond graph and multibody dynamic models of ground vehicle dynamics, global chassis control systems, alternative powertrain technologies, energy optimization, optimal control, and robust control.


Also check out our github organization. We make updates to allow the easy reproduction of our work for select projects.
