VIncent Laurense PhD Candidate Autonomous Vehicle Control

An aerospace engineer graduated from Delft University of Technology, with a profound interest in automotive engineering challenges and research projects asking for innovative solutions. Recently started graduate studies (PhD) in the Dynamic Design Lab, Mechanical Engineering, Stanford University, focusing on autonomous vehicles and vehicle dynamics & control at the limits of handling.


The Revs Program at Stanford benefits from use of the Automotive Innovation Facility, which houses the Volkswagen Automotive Innovation Lab (often referred to as 'VAIL'), a state of the art vehicle research facility where interdisciplinary teams can work on projects that move vehicle technology forward. In order to improve safety, sustainability, performance, and enjoyment of automobiles, the Automotive Innovation Facility provides a place for researchers to test new ideas in real vehicles.
