“Parameter Estimation and Line Width Control of Robot Guided Inkjet
Deposition,” by B. Jafari, N. Lee, B. Antohe and N. Gans was accepted to appear at the 2018 American Controls Conference.
The SeRViCE Lab has projects funded on two new grants starting in September:
- Time-Invariant, Multi-Objective Extremum Seeking Control for Model-Free Auto-Tuning of Powered Prosthetic Legs, from the National Science Foundation
- Distributed Control and Vision-Based Estimation for UAS Autonomy, from the Air Force Research Laboratory Munitions Directorate
Lab Member Saurav Kumar was just at the 2017 IEEE Conference on Control Technology and Applications. His paper “Automatic Tuning of Virtual Constraint-Based Control Algorithms for Powered Knee-Ankle Prostheses” was nominated for best student paper!
