MEAM Seminar: “Lubrication and Tribology Trends and Challenges in Passenger Electric Vehicles”

April 2 at 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM
Zoom – Email MEAM for Link, peterlit@seas.upenn.edu

It is becoming more difficult and expensive to continue developing internal combustion engine (ICE) powered vehicles to meet the increasingly tight emissions goals addressing global climate change. Over the last few years, automobile manufacturers have been turning their attention toward electrification as the most practical and cost-effective way of providing personal transportation options that will […]

PICS Colloquium: “Molecular Engineering of Ice Responsive Materials: Decoding Heterogeneous Ice Nucleation”

April 2 at 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Zoom – email kathom@seas.upenn.edu

Abstract: The presence of particles such as dust and pollen affect cloud microphysics significantly through their effect on the state of water. These particles can hinder or accelerate the liquid-to-solid transition of water, and also affect the ice polymorph formed in the clouds. This indirectly cloud reflectivity, cloud lifetime, and precipitation rates. While a predominant […]

ESE Thesis Defense: “Accelerated Risk Assessment and Domain Adaptation for Autonomous Vehicles”

April 2 at 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Zoom- Email mokelly@seas.upenn.edu for link

Autonomous vehicles (AVs) are already driving on public roads around the US; however, their rate of deployment far outpaces quality assurance and regulatory efforts. Consequently, even the most elementary tasks, such as automated lanekeeping, have not been certified for safety, and operations are constrained to narrow domains. First, due to the limitations of worst-case analysis […]
