MSc Andrei Aksjonov, Early Stage Researcher 8, GM3
Andrei Aksjonov was born in Tallinn, Estonia, on December 5, 1989. He has obtained Master of Science (MSc) degree in Automation Engineering from Tallinn University of Technology in 2015. The same year he enrolled to a doctoral program (PhD) at the same institution. In parallel to his studies he has served as a project manager in his home town company Vertex Estonia AS. Moreover, he also studied one year in Politecnico di Milano, Italy as an Erasmus exchange student. His MSc thesis was about modelling and control of three-dimensional gantry crane test rig. In the year 2016 he worked as a visiting researcher at Technische Universität Ilmenau in the framework of Deutsche Bundesstiftung Umwelt exchange scholarship program. His research in the project covered passenger vehicle safety and energy efficiency improvement via dynamics control using fuzzy set theory. In particular, design of a robust ESP and ABS systems with serial regenerative braking function for 4-in-wheel-motor powertrain electric vehicle based on fuzzy logic control. He is currently a Marie Curie Research Fellow with hosting at ŠKODA Auto a.s. His research topic is about a development of human-machine-interface (HMI) evaluation methods and driver advisory functions for low-emission Multi-Actuated Ground Vehicles using Fuzzy Set Theory.
