A team of Virginia Tech students, the designers of an electric motorcycle, is heading to the world championship race in Daytona this fall after winning a competition in California.
The Center for Vehicle Systems and Safety (CVeSS) at Virginia Tech was established in 2004 by Dr. Mehdi Ahmadian, professor of Mechanical Engineering, and director of CVeSS. The center consists of six laboratories: The Advanced Vehicle Dynamics Laboratory (AVDL, established 1995), Vehicle Terrain Performance Laboratory (VTPL, established 2006), Performance Engineering and Research Laboratory (PERL, established 2006), Railway Technologies Laboratory (RTL, established 2004) and Intelligent Transportation Laboratory (ITL,established 2008). Computational Multiphysics Systems Laboratory(CMS) has joined CVeSS on 2011. The center is served by seven full-time faculty, more than twenty graduate students, a large number of undergraduate students and technical personnel. Several other Virginia Tech faculty members and visiting scholars are CVeSS affiliate faculty.
