Research interest:

Model-free control

  • Develop a new optimization tool for model-free control design, such as stochastic approximation, gradient free method and game theoretic approach.
  • Establish a new model-free controller structure, such as nonlinear PID, bio-inspired controllers and hybrid controllers.

Vibration control

  • Control of flexible structures, such as flexible robot manipulator, crane systems, liquid slosh systems.
  • Establish a new control strategy (feedback/feedforward) for vibration or sway suppression.

Control of mechatronics systems

  • Control of underactuated mechanical systems, such as inverted pendulum, gantry crane and liquid slosh cargo vehicle.
  • Control of multi-agent robots to perform desired motion coordination tasks, such as formation, coverage and rendezvous.
