Assistant Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering - University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

Dr. Talebpour is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He has more than 12 years of experience in teaching, research, and consulting in vehicle automation, connected transportation system, traffic analysis, and traffic flow theory. He was leading Texas A&M’s team in SAE/GM AutoDrive Challenge (before joining UIUC), a four-year competition to develop a fully (level 4) autonomous vehicle among eight Universities. He is currently leading an FHWA-funded project focusing on trajectory data collection from CAV operations in highway and arterial environments, “Third Generation Simulation Data (TGSIM)”. He has been working on developing algorithms for vehicle safety and efficiency in a connected and automated driving environment and has developed simulation tools to simultaneously simulate wireless communications and drivers and automated vehicles.
