CTS-IGERT welcomes Dr. Cem Saraydar, General Motors, Global Research and Development, who will present a seminar entitled "Reinventing the Automobile" on Friday, January 14th at 2:30 p.m. in Room 1000 SEO.
Driven by the global challenges of energy sustainability, CO2 reduction, and urbanization, the automotive industry is in an unprecedented period of invention. The industry is reinventing the automobile using a new “DNA” that will make our future vehicles even more energy efficient, more sustainable, safer, and more exciting to drive. Unlike today’s mechanically driven vehicles, which are powered by the internal combustion engine and energized by petroleum, our future automobiles will have electrically driven vehicle architectures that are powered by electric motors and batteries/fuel cells, energized by electricity/hydrogen, and electronically controlled. In addition, they will have new telematics, sensing, and control technologies that will enable them to connect to the infrastructure, communicate with each other, and even drive themselves. In his talk, I will address the opportunities and challenges presented by the reinvention of the automobile. I will highlight how vehicle electrification, electronification, and connectivity will increase the intelligence of our vehicles, automate the driving task, and lead to new concepts for personal urban mobility.
Cem Saraydar received his bachelor’s degree from Bogazici University, Istanbul, Turkey, and master’s and Ph.D. degrees from WINLAB, Rutgers University, all in Electrical Engineering. Following Ph.D., he worked for the Performance Analysis Department at Bell Laboratories, Holmdel, NJ, as a member of technical staff, and, subsequently, at the ECE Department at NJIT, Newark, NJ as a Research Associate where in addition to his research responsibilities; he supervised graduate student thesis work and taught several classes in the ECE and Math departments, both at the graduate and undergraduate levels. He is currently a business planning manager in General Motors Global R&D in Warren, Michigan. His current research interests include wireless ad hoc networks and wireless sensor networks. His earlier work covers topics such as optimal pricing in wireless data networks, applications of game theory in wireless networks, graph theoretic models in communications systems, mobility management in cellular systems, and traffic modeling and rate control for wireless data networks. Dr. Saraydar is the author of over 30 publications and the co-inventor of over a dozen patents/patent applications. He has served the technical community in various roles such as technical program committee member on numerous conferences, workshop chair, guest editor, NSF panelist and doctoral thesis committee member.
