Three Presented with SAE International Vincent Bendix Automotive Electronics Engineering Award

WARRENDALE, Pa., July 12, 2011 - SAE International honored Marcello Canova, Ming-Feng Hsieh and Junmin Wang with the Vincent Bendix Automotive Electronics Engineering Award for their paper Model Predictive Control Approach for AFR Control during Lean NOx Trap Regenerations.” The award was presented during the SAE 2011 World Congress in Detroit.

Established in 1976, this annual award recognizes the author(s) of the best paper relating to automotive electronics engineering presented at a meeting of the Society or any of its sections, or it may recognize an individual for distinguished accomplishment in automotive electronics engineering.

Dr. Canova is an Assistant Professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at The Ohio State University and fellow of the OSU Center for Automotive Research. His research interests lie in the broad area of energy, fluid and thermal sciences, with emphasis on modeling, model order reduction and dynamic systems and control problems associated with future ground vehicle propulsion systems, including advanced engine and powertrain systems, hybrid electric vehicles, and energy storage systems. Dr. Canova earned his MS and PhD degrees from the University of Parma, Italy. 

Dr. Hsieh is a Senior Control and Diagnostics Engineer at Cummins technical center. His research areas include diesel engine and after-treatment controls, autonomous vehicles, vehicle control, vehicle dynamics, mechanical design, optimization application, design for manufacture, and patent analysis. Dr. Hsieh received BE and MS degrees in Mechanical Engineering from National Chiao-Tung University and a PhD in Mechanical Engineering from The Ohio State University. 

Dr. Wang is an Assistant Professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at The Ohio State University. He is founder and director of the Vehicle Systems and Control Laboratory, where research is conducted involving control, modeling, estimation, and diagnosis of dynamical systems, specifically for engine, powertrain, aftertreatment, hybrid, flexible fuel, alternative / renewable energy, (electric) ground vehicle, transportation, sustainable mobility, and mechatronic systems. He holds advanced engineering degrees from Tsinghua University, the University of Minnesota, and the University of Texas at Austin, including a PhD in Mechanical Engineering.
