Michael is a second-year MASc candidate in Mechanical and Materials Engineering under the supervision of Joshua Marshall. For the remainder of his MASc, Michael will continue with his research on autonomous path following on low friction terrain. To implement his research, Michael will be using the Offroad Robotics Kubota RTV900 autonomous truck for full scale testing. Michael will be looking to utilize and leverage vehicle side slip on ice to improve path following peformance and vehicle speed.
