Control, Dynamics and Estimation Laboratory

Research related to modeling, system identification and control of dynamical systems is the focus of this lab. The research is application driven. For instance, development of prefiltering techniques for the attenuation of residual vibration is motivated by applications such as seek control algorithms for hard disk drives. Typical applications which the lab has been involved with include:

  • time-delay filters for vibration control of hard disk drives
  • modeling of air-conditioners for automobiles
  • nonlinear controllers for electrohydraulic valves
  • adverse condition alerting systems for automobiles
  • spool geometry optimization for electro hydraulic valves
  • target tracking for littoral vehicles
  • real-time model identification for air-seperation processes
  • real-time vehicle dynamics simulation for a virtual reality simulator
