    Photolithography is a step in semiconductor manufacturing that uses a laser beam to transfer a pattern from a mask to the surface of a silicon wafer. This process is implemented by an optomechanical device called a wafer scanner. Wafer scanners require ultra-high-precision repetitive positioning capabilities. When the disturbances are repetitive, ILC improves performance of wafer-stage positioning... View full abstract»

    The purpose of this article is to illustrate, through the example of human dynamics, that a thorough understanding of complex systems requires an understanding of network dynamics as well as network topology and architecture. After an overview of the topology of complex networks, such as the Internet and the WWW, data-driven models for human dynamics are given. These models motivate the study of n... View full abstract»

    Self-assembly is the phenomenon in which a collection of particles spontaneously arrange themselves into a coherent structure. Self-assembly is ubiquitous in nature. In this article we consider the task of programming active self-assembling and self-organizing systems at the level of interactions among particles in the system. To demonstrate the approach, we use it to control an experimental syste... View full abstract»

    Large-scale sensor networks give rise to estimation problems that have a rich graphical structure. We studied one of these problems in terms of how such an estimate can be efficiently computed in a distributed manner as well as how the quality of an optimal estimate scales with the size of the network. Two distributed algorithms are presented to compute the optimal estimates that are scalable and ... View full abstract»

    Motion coordination is a remarkable phenomenon in biological systems and an extremely useful tool for groups of vehicles, mobile sensors, and embedded robotic systems. For many applications, teams of mobile autonomous agents need the ability to deploy over a region, assume a specified pattern, rendezvous at a common point, or move in a synchronized manner. The objective of this article is to illus... View full abstract»

    This article describes PCOD, a cooperative control framework for stabilizing relative equilibria in a model of self-propelled, steered particles moving in the plane at unit speed. Relative equilibria correspond either to motion of all of the particles in the same direction or to motion of all of the particles around the same circle. Although the framework applies to time-varying and directed inter... View full abstract»
