Venkat Krovi, PhD, FASME

Michelin Endowed Chair in Vehicle Electronic Systems Integration

SmartState® Center of Excellence in Vehicle Electronic Systems Integration


  • Next-generation of smart, embedded mechanical, mechatronic and robotic systems-of-systems.
  • Life-cycle treatment (design, modeling, analysis, control, implementation and verification).
  • Applications in Intra- and inter-vehicle automation, Multi-robot collaboration, mediated human-computer interfaces, haptic user-interface design and distributed real-time simulation and control of systems.

Dr. Krovi’s research focuses on intelligent modulation of physical-power-interactions (motions/forces) between humans and autonomous-systems to unlock the “power of the many”. Research activities focus on the complete life-cycle treatment (design, modeling, analysis, control, implementation and verification) of a new generation of systems for realizing Human-Autonomy synergy with applications in vehicle automation, plant-automation, surgical-robotics, and defense arenas. 

His research has been funded by NSF, DARPA, ARO as well as numerous state and industrial grants. His work has been published in more than 175 journal/conference articles, book chapters and patents. He has received multiple awards, including the National Science Foundation (NSF) CAREER Award, Petro-Canada Young Innovator Award, several best poster, conference and journal paper awards. 

He has also played an active leadership role within multiple ManufacturingUSA institutes including the Advanced Robotics Manufacturing (ARM) institute. He has also taken significant leadership roles in research, education and organization within multiple professional societies (ASME, IEEE, SAE).  Further details are available from https://sites.google.com/view/armlab-cuicar/.
