End of Life Vehicle Remanufacturing and Recycling
The ELV Remanufacturing and Recycling team focuses on research related to the handling and management of End-of-Life Vehicles through remanufacturing and recycling. Areas of focus includes socio-technical-economic studies related to ELV implementation, design for efficient recovery of products at the end of their useful life, demand and supply chain and life cycle assessment. The team also focuses on the application of enabling technologies such as additive manufacturing to support ELV remanufacturing and recycling process. Research focus is in-line with the National Automotive Policy 2020, National Remanufacturing Policy and the National Policy of IR4.0.
E-Mobility and Intelligent Vehicle Technologies
The e-mobility research group focuses on the development of improved algorithms, controllers and optimisations for the health prognostic of lithium-ion battery management in EV applications, focusing on battery cell balancing, thermal management, faults diagnosis and prognosis of BMS using data-driven model framework. In the field of intelligent vehicle, research is in the area of vehicular communication and intelligent transportation system (ITS) which includes channel propagation modelling, channel estimation, multiple antennas, machine learning and coding techniques that will increase the robustness of the doubly selective high Doppler and delay spread vehicular channels.
