Personal profile

Biography

Dr Huda is a Lecturer at Coventry University with more than seven years of experience in robotics and control. Recently, he has broadened his research area and included robotic (self-driving) vehicles and renewable energy. Currently, he is supervising one PhD student on AI (Artificial Intelligence) for self-driving car and one PhD student on renewable energy. He has worked in Horizon-2020 Helenic-REF Project worth of €2.57M at Cranfield University. He has worked in the Innovate UK funded Gyrodrive Research Project worth of £2M at Coventry University. He was involved in developing two successful grants application: Real-time adaptive networked control of rescue robots (€300k, funded by FP7-PEOPLE-2012-IRSES) and FUSION (€3.05M, funded by Erasmus Mundus).
