Hybrid control of autonomous system

Researchers: Anders Lindquist, Xiaoming Hu, and Maja Karasalo.

Sponsor: The Swedish Foundation for Strategic Researches (SSF).

This project is part of an ongoing research effort of the Center for Autonomous Systems. In this project we use a hybrid system approach to study some issues concerning the integration of control and sensor systems for complex systems such as autonomous systems. In particular, the following issues are studied.

  1. Hierarchical control architechtures for autonmous systems.
  2. Sensor fusion, active sensing and nonlinear observers.
  3. Feedback Control under sensor and communication constraints.
  4. Path following, mobile manipulation and multi-agent control.
