Welcome to the Mobility Automation Lab (MALab) at Texas Tech University Whitacre College of Engineering. Our research interests focus on developing modeling, control and optimization methods for a wide range of autonomous mobility systems. Current projects include: connected and autonomous vehicle; intelligent transportation systems; human behaviors analysis and modeling; vehicle dynamics and propulsion systems, etc.
We are currently looking for motivated students (undergraduate and graduate) to join our research in above mentioned areas. Prospective students are encouraged to contact Prof. Yao Ma through email and briefly describe your interests and qualifications.
