Ruixiang Du

I am a PhD candidate in Mechanical Engineering at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) and working in the Autonomy, Control, and Estimation Laboratory (ACEL) under supervision of Professor Raghvendra V. Cowlagi. I have general interests in robotics, real-time and embedded systems. My current research focus is on the sensing and motion planning of self-driving cars.

I received my Master’s degree in Robotics Engineering from WPI in May, 2013. And I spent about one and a half years working on the DARPA Robotics Challenge with Professor Taskin Padir. Our Team WPI-CMU ranked 7th out of 23 competing teams in the DRC Finals.
