Dr. Sivakumar Rathinam was recently named a fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME).

Rathinam is an associate professor in the J. Mike Walker ‘66 Department of Mechanical Engineering at Texas A&M University. In 2007, he received a doctoral degree in civil engineering systems from the University of California, Berkeley.

His research is primarily focused on autonomous vehicles. This includes motion planning and control of autonomous vehicles, collaborative decision making, combinatorial optimization, artificial intelligence, vision-based control and air traffic control.

"I am humbled on becoming an ASME fellow and to be recognized for my contributions in the area of autonomous vehicles,” said Rathinam. “This award will further motivate me to pursue scholarly research of the highest quality."

The award recognizes members who have achieved excellence through engineering. Out of 74,788 ASME members, Rathinam will take his place as one of the 3,427 fellows.
