Dr. Andrzej M. Pawlak
.Ph.D.New Business Technology Development ManagerDelphi Corporation Andrzej M. Pawlak, Ph.D., (Fellow IEEE), was born and educated in Poland.He obtained his M.S. in 1971 from the Technical University of Poznan.He did postgraduate study at the Warsaw University of Technology and obtained his Ph.D. in electrical engineering in 1981 from the Silesian University of Technology, Gliwice.His years of engineering and technology experience stem from his work at the Hitachi Poland and Japan manufacturing plants and his 20 years of research on electromechanical and electromagnetic devices at General Motors and subsequently Delphi, all of which contributed to his solid background of industrial expertise.His
works on stepper motors, magnetic sensors, rotary actuators, and fast acting solenoids are frequently cited worldwide.
Most of Dr. Pawlak's
116 scientific and patent publications are related to sensors and actuators.His
book Sensors and Actuators in Mechatronics published by Taylor and Francis in July 2006, is the culmination of his
research findings and award-winning solutions for industrial applications over the last 20 years.A number of them have found industrial applications in mechatronic systems with significant scientific, engineering, and economical impact on the automotive industry and beyond, with tremendous overall business value to Delphi and General Motors
was honored with one of the highest number of individual awards in General Motors
and Delphi history, including four prestigious "Boss" Kettering Awards for his
was the first individual from the automotive industry to receive the Respectable Achievement Award of the Industrial Research Institute
has contributed to the initial scientific analysis and design of several unique electromagnetic and electromechanical devices.An actuator he
invented for the MagnasteerÂ® system led to the development and the first industrial application of neodymium ring magnets with radial orientation, which are now commonly found in a variety of industrial applications and consumer products.Dr. Pawlak
is a frequent invited keynote speaker and panelist at professional conferences and congresses worldwide.
