Visible to the public Understanding Robustness of Battery Supported Cyber-Physical Systems

This research aims to introduce methods to analyze the robustness of battery supported cyber physical systems under co-designed control, scheduling, and battery management algorithms. Robustness refers to the ability to maintain system performance under perturbations. Robustness in controller design has been well defined and understood for a large class of feedback control systems, yet robustness of scheduling and battery management algorithms is relatively less understood.

Visible to the public Robust Algorithms for Mobile Robots to Learn Human Preferred Movement in a Hallway


We propose a dual expert algorithm (DEA) to assist a mobile robot in learning a person's preference of moving direction when the human encounters the robot in a typical hallway. When in use in hospital and office environments, a mobile robot will routinely encounter people who are not its primary user. These people need to feel comfortable around the robot for its implementation to be a success.
