Our research at the Dynamic Design Laboratory centers on the generation and simplification of dynamic models for mechanical systems and the use of these models in the design of complex systems. Of particular interest are the integrated design and control
of mechanical devices (design for controllability) and the application of advanced analysis and control techniques to ground vehicle design.
Professor Chris Gerdes is our chief academic advisor and oversees all of
our research. He has worked with Daimler-Benz in the Vehicle Systems
Technology Center and currently teaches vehicle dynamics and control systems at Stanford University.
We are located in the new Mechanical Engineering Research Lab, Room 130 near the center
of the Stanford University campus. For a map of the campus
