Areas of specialization Flight Dynamics, Guidance and Control, Optimal Control, Air Traffic Management
Laboratory/research office Mechanical and Aerospace Control Systems Laboratory
This laboratory investigates control technology for a variety of systems, particularly magnetic suspension, aerospace and robotics. In control technology, numerical model expressions are used to formulate control strategies to get systems to achieve their intended purposes. This laboratory uses this approach to develop comprehensive control systems applying intelligent and optimal control, sensing technology, and driving and transforming mechanisms.
