Design of Dynamics of Mobile Sensor Networks for Uniform Coverage

George Mathew

For many applications of mobile sensor networks, it is useful to design their dynamics so that their trajectories are as uniformly distributed as possible in the domain of interest. In this work, we propose centralized feedback control laws so that the mobile sensors achieve uniform coverage.

DRIMPOS - Drifter Motion Planning and Optimal Surveillance of the Oceans

Blane Rhoads

My work is in the area of numerical solution of optimal control problems for general, low-dimensional nonlinear systems, with particular application to guidance in coastal ocean flows.

Nonlinear Dynamics and Control of Power Grids

Dr. Yoshihiko Susuki


Our current objectives are to characterize inherent instabilities for small-scale power grids and thereby to derive a control algorithm for avoiding them.
