Prof. Wen-hua Chen has been awarded EPSRC Fellowship


A member of the CACSUK Society, Professor Wen-hua Chen, has just been awarded the prestigious EPSRC Fellowship. Many congratulations! Wen-hua is Professor in Autonomous Vehicles at Loughborough University. In the 5-year Fellowship project, Prof. Chen will develop analysis and design tools for goal-oriented control systems, build up a unified framework for the next generation of control systems in performance specifications, constraint representation and problem formulating, investigate its performance and other properties in the presence of disturbance, uncertainties and constraints, and benchmark their applications.

Wen-Hua Chen holds professor in autonomous vehicles in the Department of Aeronautical and Automotive Engineering at Loughborough University, UK, where he is also heading the Controls and Reliability Research Group. Before joining Loughborough in 2000 as Lecturer in Flight Control Systems, Dr. Chen was a Research Fellow and then Lecturer in Control Engineering in the Centre for Systems and Control at the University of Glasgow, Scotland. Dr Chen has a considerable experience in advanced control, signal processing and computational intelligence and their applications in aerospace and automotive engineering. In the last 15 years, he has been spending most of his effort in developing autonomous system technologies and their applications in agriculture, environment and defence. Prof Chen is a Chartered Engineer, and a Fellow of the IEEE, the Institution of Engineering and Technology and the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, UK. He has published about 250 papers with about a total of 9,000 citations.
