 CeramatecDolly Chitta  Small Business Power Generation and Energy Production: Liquid and Gaseous Fuels/Nuclear My name is Dolly Chitta. I am the PI on ARPA-E funded program for “Natural gas to Chemicals”. I worked with several ARPA-E PD’s Dr. Boysen, Dr. Lemmon, Dr. Cheryl Martin (former) and Dr. Mumme (current) T2M advisor. I have successfully transitioned the program from TRL 1-5 to private funding (Multimillion in 2 years) wherein CoorsTek has taken over the technology scale up effort beyond ARPA_E funding. I have a PhD with background in Chemical engg. I was part of a team for spinning off new start-ups as well as license the technologies to other companies. I work closely with a number of Fortune 500, privately held large companies, universities and VC firms for T2M (ex. Air Products, Chevron, Hunt Oil, CoorsTek, SABIC, BP, Grace Davison, Albemarle, Western H2 and ExxonMobil, UC Berkeley and Harvard U, UNC, Northwestern, ANL). I understand the ecosystem of technology transition for energy projects from early stage to ultimate commercialization and believe I can add value to ARPA-E teams.  
 Iowa State UniversityRan Dai  Academic Other Energy Technologies Our research developed a distributed traffic control framework to optimize the performance of balanced fuel consumption and travel time in large scale transportation networks at macroscopic level. We integrate the roadway infrastructures that equipped with sensing, communication, and parallel computation functionalities in the new traffic control paradigm. Going beyond the existing distributed architectures where precise dynamic flow models and fuel consumptions have not been considered, our work generates traffic control strategies to realize real-time macroscopic level traffic regulation with high precision. The developed control framework has significant impact on fuel savings and lead to energy economization in transportation. A byproduct of the research is the alleviation of traffic congestion and auto emissions. Expertise: Distributed control, networked systems, Optimization

 Clemson UniversityAndrej Ivanco  Academic Transportation The autonomous transportation system or RoboTaxi requires several areas of expertise to be synergistically joined together. High level part is managing the vehicle dispatching, communication and security, which dwells mostly in the domain of the Computer Science and Engineering. Middle ware is responsible for the system operation, efficiency, resource allocation and service quality, where Operational research and Civil Engineering are contributing mostly. Finally, the low lever part is managing the individual vehicle guidance and route planning, where the Mechanical and Automotive Engineering becomes essential.

The overarching outcome is to develop a dynamic transit allocation algorithm, which aggregates and process all mobility demands and assigns vehicles based on multiple criteria, such as: (i) Customer pick-up and drop off location, (ii) Customer tolerance for waiting time (iii) Available vehicles with respect to their location and on-board energy state of charge.

 Columbia UniversityHuiming Yin  Academic Other Energy Technologies The long-term goal of this research team is to use emerging information communication and big data technologies to design and develop advanced transportation systems for improved energy efficiency and minimized environmental impacts. The objective of this project is to develop a simulation software package to demonstrate and improve the energy efficiency of the transportation system using New York City as an example. To this end, a system model will be designed and developed to simulate the real world transit behavior cross traveler social network, roadway network, and information communication network; on the other hand, a control architecture will be introduced and implemented to measure the energy use and optimize the transit behavior toward improved energy efficiency and environmental footprints. The system model and control architecture will be implemented in the software package - Open Mode Integrated Transportation System (OMITS).
