Hello! My name is Yu Zhang(张玉). I am a PhD candidate in School of Mechanical Engineering at Beijing Institute of Technology. I am also a visiting student in WAVELab at University of Waterloo.

My research interests cover the area of motion planning and control algorithms, simulation for autonomous cars. My focus is more about optimization-based and sampling-based motion planning algorithms subject to differential contraints. I developed several handy simulation tools to support motion planning and control algorithms testing of autonomous driving system based on V-rep as well.

I am also a main contributor to several awesome autonomous driving projects from motion planning and simulation aspects: Autonomoose, Skyline(Renesas Car), BlackBerry QNX Autonomous Prototype Vehicle.

In 2017, I attended the CES(Consumer Electronics Show) in Las Vegas to show the functional safety, autonomy of our autonomous driving system running on low power consumption R-Car H3 SoC. It’s a big success!
