He is also the chair of graduate education and research committee of ME department, and director of Mechatronics research lab. He received his Ph.D. from University of Arizona, Tucson, AZ in 1995. He worked as an R&D engineer at Caterpillar, Inc. between 1995 and 1999 where he focused on X-By-Wire systems design for Wheel Loaders. He then joined Ford Motor Company / Visteon Corporation in 1999 as a Senior R&D engineer where he led the fault tolerant design of Drive-By-Wire systems. After about nine years of stint in the industry, he made a switch to academia and joined the Department of Mechanical Engineering at IUPUI in 2004. He led a research investigation in the more efficient design of Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEV) through a grant from Indiana Office of Energy and Defense Developments. Two PHEVs were developed under this grant. One of his current research focuses on improving moving object detection from a moving vehicle in the context of autonomous driving. Dr. Anwar has published over 110 papers and 14 patents. Dr. Anwar’s research interests are Autonomous Vehicle Systems, Hybrid Vehicle Control, and X-By-Wire system modeling and control.
