Dr. Yue-Yun Wang is General Motors Technical Fellow at propulsion systems research lab in R&D. Before joining in GM 2005, he was a technical advisor at Technical Center in Cummins Engine Company. He also held visiting scholar positions as Alexander von Humboldt research fellow at Duisburg University, Germany, and at the Center for Automotive Research of Ohio State University, USA. Dr.Wang’s primary role is to lead and drive the forefront research and innovations in vehicular propulsion systems and clean technologies that impact mobility industry and environment. His research focuses are applying advanced electronic controls, model-based controls, estimation theory and artificial intelligence to next generation vehicular propulsion systems, that can significant reduce vehicle tailpipe emissions. He has been highly successful to bridge the gap that brings a stream of research results into mass vehicle production applications. In the light of exemplar contributions in promoting clean tech in transportation systems, he was one of the main contributors in Cummins, who developed the 2002 world first highway 600 HP engines with 40% NOx emission reduction. He led the development of an advanced lean NOx trap and particulate filter control system, that further enabled 90% NOx and particulate emissions reduction for the world’s lowest emission diesel pick-up trucks (Dodge Ram) in 2007. At General Motors, he and his team developed a breakthrough method in multivariable nonlinear model-based air-charging control for downsize boosted engines, that enable 20% better fuel economy; and the model predictive control of emission aftertreatment systems, meeting the most stringent Euro-6d and EPA GHG emission standards. The systems have achieved 80% reduction of real road driving NOx emissions, and 70% reduction of GHG emissions. In a path to zero emissions, Dr. Wang is developing a pioneer solution of distributed battery management systems. The systems use wireless microcontrollers with a combination of edge and cloud computing for electric vehicles to enhance safety, performance, and battery lifespan. He is also developing cloud-based ECO system solutions to smart energy management for EVs and autonomous fleets. Dr. Wang has authored or coauthored over 100 publications, holds 115 U.S. patents, over 40 of his patented inventions have been implemented in millions of passenger cars, pickup trucks and commercial vehicles equipped with the state-of-the-art clean propulsion systems technologies. Dr. Wang is the IEEE VTS distinguished lecturer from 2017~2021, he is currently the IEEE VTS distinguished speaker. He served on the Board of Governors of the IEEE VTS Society since 2018 and served for the Industry Engagement Committee of IEEE VTS Conferences since 2019. He was the Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Vehicular Technology (2013-2016), and the Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Control Systems Technology (2016-2019), he was also the Vice-Chair of the Automotive Controls Technical Committee of the IEEE Control Systems Society, and served the IEEE student best paper selection committee for American control Conference 2019. He also served Industry Advisory Board for Center for Automotive Research at The Ohio State University. Dr. Wang is the fellow of Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE).
