The award was established in 1998 to recognize authors who wrote papers that are of high presentation quality, original, have technical merit and potential impact to the SMCS Field of Interest. 

Professor Wang co-authored the winning paper, “A Personalizable Driver Steering Model Capable of Predicting Driver Behaviors in Vehicle Collisions Avoidance Maneuvers,” with his former Ph.D. student, Scott Schnelle, and two other collaborators, and the paper was published in IEEE Transactions on Human-Machine Systems in 2017. He will receive a monetary award along with a plaque showcasing their accomplishment.

Professor Wang has received the Ohio State University Lumley Interdisciplinary Research Award in 2018, the 2017 IEEE Transactions on Fuzzy Systems Outstanding Paper Award in 2016, and is an IEEE Vehicular Technology Society Distinguished Lecturer, SAE Fellow, and ASME Fellow.
