Personal profile

Research profile

Carlos Mendes da Costa Junior currently pursues a PhD at Eindhoven University of Technology, The Netherlands, on the topic of Reliable, Low Latency Wireless Link for Shock Absorbers.

Autonomous shock absorbers can recover the energy for their operation from the movement of the shock absorber. The control algorithms of the shock absorber can also be implemented locally with the shock absorber, eliminating the need for energy or information exchange between the shock absorber and the car itself. However, there is still a need to align the settings of the individual shock absorbers, so a communication path needs to be established. To ensure flexibility and reduce cost, this communication should preferably be wireless. Therefore, this work focus on developing a low-power, reliable and low latency wireless link for autonomous shock absorbers.

Academic background

Carlos Mendes da Costa Junior has a MSc and a BSc (with honours) in Electrical Engineering from the Federal University of Rio Grande do Norte (UFRN) in Brazil. Additionally, he graduated with honours on a Specializing Master in Navigation and Related Applications from Politecnico di Torino in Italy. He worked as a researcher at German Aerospace Center (DLR) and taught electrical engineering bachelor students as a Junior Assistant Professor at UFRN. Currently Carlos is pursuing his PhD at Eindhoven University of Technology.
