As cybersecurity research at The Ohio State University grows, so does the need for talent in that area. Rahan Rasheed Khan is joining the Center for Automotive Research (CAR) as a visiting scholar. Khan will be working in the Cybersecurity@CAR Lab as well as on CARMEN (Center for Automated Vehicle Research with Multimodal AssurENavigation), a US Department of Transportation, University Transportation Center.

Khan is joining CAR from the Institute of Space Technology in Pakistan where he received his master’s degree in Navigation, Guidance and Control. There, he used MATLAB Simulink to build a simulation model for airship, also known as high altitude platform, which can hover at particular heights and follow control commands.

“I’m excited to learn from and be part of the CAR team working on advanced level automation of connected vehicles,” said Khan.

CAR will benefit from Khan’s expertise as he works with Research Associate Professor, Qadeer Ahmed on precise Positioning, Navigation and Timing (PNT) solutions. Khan will use GNSS and INS sensors as an input to build simulation models of different test scenarios for connected and autonomous vehicles to ensure safe and reliable results.

“His experience in Guidance, Navigation and Control compliments the expertise we have at CAR and can certainly help us to understand PNT challenges in highly automated transportation systems (HATS),” said Ahmed.
