Personal profile


Felix is a PhD student in the field of autonomous vehicle research. He is conducting his doctoral studies in a collaborative research project between Coventry University and HORIBA MIRA. He is a member of the Institute for Future Transport and Cities (FTC) at Coventry University and the Centre for Connected Autonomous Automotive Research (CCAAR) at HORIBA MIRA.

After receiving a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering from Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), Germany, he went on to pursue a consecutive Master of Science in Automotive Engineering from KIT. Additionally, he holds a Master of Engineering degree from Tongji University in Shanghai, China, where he spent two years. He concluded his studies with a research project at Bosch (China) Investment Ltd., leading to the dissertation “Modelling and Degree of Hybridization Optimization of a Fuel Cell-Battery Hybrid Scooter”.

Research Interests

Felix' research focuses on developing a new methodology to test autonomous vehicles using comprehensive vehicle simulation in conjunction with supervised machine learning. He is developing a framework, that identifies safety critical corner case scenarios, which reveal flaws in the design and behaviour of novel autonomous vehicles.

He has further interest in the area of model predictive control for behaviour generation and path planning of autonomous vehicles.
