Research ELISA Lab

ELISA: ELectrified and Intelligent Systems Automation Lab

The ELectrified and Intelligent Systems Automation Lab (ELISA) at Oakland University was established in 2020. The primary research of ELISA Lab are in the areas of AI-assisted control algorithm development with application in intelligent vehicles and power & energy systems. The projects involve fundamental research on control theory, optimization, artificial intelligence, and statistics to support intelligent cyber-physical systems development including smart energy and transportation systems.
