University of Cambridge

I was a research student in the Department of Engineering at the University of Cambridge from 1996 until 2000. I worked on the Cambridge Vehicle Dynamics Consortium's project Maximising Roll-over Stability of Heavy Road Vehicles, specialising in vehicle dynamics simulation and control system design, under the supervision of Dr David Cebon. I graduated with the degree of Ph.D. in 2001.

Research overview

The roll-over of heavy vehicles is an important road safety problem worldwide. Active roll control systems consisting of active anti-roll bars can significantly improve the roll stability of single unit and articulated heavy vehicles.

Current work

In 2021, MathWorks joined the Cambridge Vehicle Dynamics Consortium and the Centre for Sustainable Road Freight, and is sponsoring the project Minimum CO2 Urban Delivery Vehicles. In this project, the Cambridge team is working on improving the manoeuvrability of electric delivery vehicles using torque-actuated steering, in order to enable significant reductions in emissions per payload.
