Bryan Riley, who joined Ohio University in 2010, has taught courses in signal processing, electrical communication systems, EE capstone design, and hybrid and electric vehicles. Riley, who spent his early career in the automotive industry, has managed multi-disciplined and global engineering teams responsible for introducing advanced electronic features for passenger vehicles such as enhancements to vehicle stability control (VSC), adaptive cruise control (ACC), and other active safety features that warn drivers of potentially hazardous driving conditions. He holds three patents and was responsible for the autonomous brake controls on an 18-month $2.4M U.S. DOT funded automotive collision avoidance system field tests. Since leaving the auto industry, Riley launched Provectus Technical Solutions, LLC, an engineering services company, in 2009.

Research Interests: autonomous vehicles, sensor fusion, active safety features and functions and broad research themes in digital signal processing including detection, classification
