  • A Virtual velocity attractor, harmonic potential approach for joint planning and control of a UAV

    Publication Year: 2011 , Page(s): 432 - 437

    The objective of this work is to develop a practical, closed-loop and simple navigation controller that suits a large variety of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). The method indirectly controls the trajectory of a UAV by regulating its velocity using as a reference a dense vector field derived from the gradient of a harmonic potential filed (HPF). The field functions to inject the robot's context i... View full abstract»

  • Computationally implementable sufficient conditions for the synchronisation of coupled dynamical systems with time delays in the coupling

    Publication Year: 2011 , Page(s): 839 - 844

    Understanding the mechanisms behind synchronisation of coupled systems is important in biology, chemistry, physics and engineering. For example, research on the synchronisation of coupled circadian clocks is of much importance to better understand many different disease states. Or, different applications in engineering require certificates for synchronised behaviour between the different coupled s... View full abstract»

  • Unknown input and sensor fault estimation using sliding-mode observers

    Sliding-mode observers are used to construct unknown input estimators. Then, these unknown input estimators are combined with sensor fault estimation schemes into one architecture that employs two sliding-mode observers for simultaneously estimating the plant's actuator faults (part of the unknown input) and detecting sensor faults. Closed form expressions are presented for the estimates of unknow... View full abstract»

    This education paper presents three entertainment problems that may be of use to educators. These problems illustrate how to use the decibel scale for back of the envelope calculation without a calculator. "Night Comes to the Cretaceous" estimates the size the meteor believed to have caused the extinction of the dinosaurs from the diameter of the Chicxulub crater in the Yucatan, the crater excavat...

  • Reach control on simplices by piecewise affine feedback

    We study the reach control problem for affine systems on simplices, and the focus is on cases when it is known that the problem is not solvable by continuous state feedback. Using the reach control indices for affine systems on simplices, we propose a subdivision algorithm and associated piecewise affine feedback. The main result is that if the reach control problem is solvable by open-loop contro... View full abstract»

  • Computationally efficient trajectory optimization for linear control systems with input and state constraints

    This paper presents a trajectory generation method that optimizes a quadratic cost functional with respect to linear system dynamics and to linear input and state constraints. The method is based on continuous-time flatness-based trajectory generation, and the outputs are parameterized using a polynomial basis. A method to parameterize the constraints is introduced using a result on polynomial non... View full abstract»

  • A tracking controller for linear systems subject to input amplitude and rate constraints

    We propose a new set point tracking controller for plants subject to simultaneous input amplitude and rate constraints. Short settling times are achieved by allowing the controller to saturate. The tracking controller can be deduced from a controller stabilizing the origin with an associated domain of attraction. Additionally, no assumptions concerning the rate of the reference signal are necessar... View full abstract»

  • Control of linear systems with input saturation and matched uncertainty and disturbance

    In this paper, we consider the problems of semi- global and global internal stabilization along with disturbance rejection for the case of so-called matched uncertainties and disturbances for linear systems subject to actuator saturation. We develop here low-and-high gain and scheduled low-and-high gain state as well as measurement feedback design methodologies to solve the posed stabilization and... View full abstract»
