Job title: 
Assistant Research Engineer
Partners for Advanced Transportation Technology
Lead Researcher

Dr. Huadong (Joshua) Meng is an Assistant Research Engineer with the California PATH program at the University of California, Berkeley. He received his B.S. in Engineering and Ph.D. in Electronic Engineering from Tsinghua University, Beijing, China, in 1999 and 2004, respectively. In 2004, he joined the faculty of Tsinghua University, where he was an Associate Professor in the Department of Electronic Engineering until 2015. Additionally, Dr. Meng was a Technical Program Committee (TPC) member of the IET International Radar Conference in 2013 and 2015.

In 2015, he joined PATH as a visiting Associate Researcher, where he worked on the research project, “Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) Toolbox: Assessing Person Throughput to Measure Transportation Impacts for BRT Projects. This work expanded his interest in the areas of conducting system design and performing implementation in the areas of traveler information systems, advanced traffic control systems, sensor data fusion schemes, and Eco driving. His other research focuses on statistical signal processing, intelligent transportation systems, wireless localization, remote sensing, localization, and target tracking.

Recently, he was the PI of a Caltrans sponsored project, “Development and Implementation of Integrated Dynamic Transit Operations System, Phase II”, where he continued his prior research by testing a fully functional Integrated Dynamic Transit Operation (IDTO) system that delivers improvements to suburban transit services. Prior to this, he was the lead on the DOE-LBL Connected Automated vehicles research project that developed and demonstrated a V2I communication system that provides information to drivers as they approach a signalized intersection to facilitate smoother arrivals and departures.
