Welcome to the online home of Stanford University’s Dynamic Design Lab!

Under the direction of Professor Chris Gerdes, we study the design and control of motion, especially as it relates to cars and vehicle safety. Our research blends analytical approaches to vehicle dynamics and control together with experiments in a variety of test vehicles and a healthy appreciation for the talents and demands of human drivers.
