About AVDC

What We are doing is..

The Advanced Vehicle Design & Control (AVDC) laboratory was established in September, 2007. Research and development of industry leading researchers and researchers in the fields of pioneering technology and creative research industry and technology, leading to the real world of overseas research, and active progress and progress of various national institutions and R & D and technical education.


Professor Lee, Chul Hee, who is a professor in the lab, graduated from Inha University, Department of Mechanical Engineering (1984), and received a Master's degree (1996) from the same university. He received his Ph.D. (2006) from the University of Illinois at Urbans-Champaign.
He is a researcher at the Hyundai Motor Research Institute (Chassis Design) and senior researcher at the US Caterpillar Inc. Central Research Institute (design and interpretation of heavy). Read more
