Research areas

OSU's College of Engineering includes a Center for Automotive Research (OSU CAR), an interdisciplinary research center focused on: advanced electric propulsion and energy storage systems; advanced engines and alternative fuels for reduced fuel consumption and emissions; intelligent transportation and vehicular communication systems; autonomous vehicles; noise, vibrations, and dynamics; vehicle chassis systems; and vehicle and occupant safety. http://car.osu.edu/ ' OSU CAR is housed in a 35,000-square-foot (3,300 m2) facility located along the Columbus, Ohio Kinnear Road technology corridor on the west side of The Ohio State University campus. OSU CAR facilities include: engines (4) and chassis (2) dynamometers; alternative fuel and exhaust after-treatment labs; combustion and flow labs; battery testing, aging, and characterization facilities; high voltage power electronics testing lab; a networking and communications lab; and high performance computing facilities for modeling and simulation of automotive systems. In addition, OSU CAR operates a fleet of electric, hybrid, fuel cell, and autonomous vehicles. A separate and adjacent 10,000-square-foot (930 m2) facility houses the OSU Motorsports program, dedicated to student automotive projects. This facility houses the EcoCAR, Buckeye Bullet, Formula SAE, Baja SAE, Solar Car, and Electric Motorcycle Race teams.

Research activities at OSU CAR fall into three broad categories: 1) optimizing vehicle and powertrains; 2) employing information, communication, and control technology to improve vehicle safety and functionality; 3) improve passenger and pedestrian safety and identify injury criteria. OSU CAR employs 30 full time professionals, 50 graduate students, and sees the participation of more than 15 faculty, who carry out over $7 million of external research projects annually. OSU CAR research portfolio is a balanced mix of industry and government funding, and offers a broad range of research and engineering services.
