Penn Engineering Professor Linh Thi Xuan Phan Joins NSF Project on Cyber-Physical Systems for Transportation Technology

Linh Thi Xuan Phan, Associate Professor in Penn Engineering’s Department of Computer and Information Science, is collaborating with an international team of researchers that will work to unify the design of software and hardware components in cyber-physical transportation systems.

This five-year, $5.7 million project, is being funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF), and will be led by researchers at the University of California, Santa Cruz. It will feature collaborators from the University of California, Berkeley; Vanderbilt University; the University of Colorado, Boulder; the Norwegian University of Science Technology and Italy’s IMT School for Advanced Studies, Lucca.

A major goal of this research is to help self-driving cars and other autonomous transportation systems achieve increased efficiency and performance, as well as better safety guarantees.
