The potential impact of a grand unified theory of the brain on the robotics community might be immense, as it might hold the key to the general artificial intelligence. Such a theory might make revolutionary leaps in robot intelligence by improving the quality of our lives. The last two decades have witnessed the rise of one such brain theory -...

Ribeiro, M.J. (author)
Increasing delays and congestion reported in many aviation sectors indicate that the current centralised operational model is rapidly approaching saturation levels. Air Traffic Control (ATC) system is not expected to keep pace with the ever-increasing demand for air transportation. Its capacity is still limited by the available controllers, and...

Keijzer, T. (author)
Without us realizing it, solutions for safety and security are present all around us. However, everyone has undoubtedly also experienced how inconvenient some safety and security measures can be. For example, think about security checks at the airport, the need to wear a bicycle helmet, or being asked to perform 2-factor authentication to log...

An effective distribution of flight control commands over many aircraft actuators (engines, control surfaces, flaps, etc.) can be achieved with constrained optimisation. Active-Set methods solve these problems efficiently, but their computational time requirements are still prohibitive for aircraft with many actuators or slower digital flight...

Control of a helicopter with a deployed dipping sound navigation and ranging (SONAR) is no trivial task due to the complex dynamics of the suspension cable. The cable can change shape, which influences the effect of water, wind and the motion of the helicopter itself. To control such a system, a control method is needed that can cope with these...

Event-Triggered Control (ETC) is a control method where the controller is only updated when necessary. The control inputs are kept fixed until a state-dependent event triggers their re-computation. The triggering condition is designed to guarantee the stability and desired performance of the control system. This prevents the excessive use of...

An Organ-on-a-Chip (OoC) is a microfluidic device that mimics an organ function on a chip. The goal of the OoC technology is to create disease models of various organs and use them to minimise animal testing. One of the important parameters to maintain the cells/tissues on the OoC is the temperature, typically at 37 °C. Usually, cell culture...

This paper presents a train robust control method to optimize train operation based on the concept virtual coupling on train platoon. This approach is inspired by the recent development of platoon control for autonomous vehicles, and it is hoped that this platoon control can be applied to railway transportation. We use a decentralized model...

The flight envelope of an aircraft operating at high subsonic velocities is bounded by several limitations, one of these consists in thewing experiencing oscillations of a shockwave on its suction side for a certain range ofMach number (Ma), angle of attack (®) and Reynolds number (Re). This phenomenon is referred to as transonic buffet and it...

This report presents two different methods for controlling the remnant magnetisation state of a permanent magnet within a Hybrid Tunable Magnet Actuator. Addressing, individually, the desire for optimum energy efficiency and control accuracy. The purpose of this actuator is to track a quasi-static position reference without continuous thermal...

Recent research in bio-inspired artificial intelligence potentially provides solutions to the challenging problem of designing fault-tolerant and robust flight control systems. The current work proposes SERL, a novel Safety-informed Evolutionary Reinforcement Learning algorithm, which combines Deep Reinforcement Learning (DRL) and neuro...

Tsaniklidis, Georgios (author)
Nowadays, the high demand for road transportation often reaches a point where it exceeds the capacity of freeway traffic networks, resulting in congestion. Freeway traffic congestion is a major social problem, as it is the reason for increased time delays, higher accident risk and environmental pollution. There is, therefore, the need for a...

This thesis presents the research to design a successful high-accuracy, sub-millimetric registration method for an autonomous robot equipped to drill bone for cochlear implant (CI) surgery. Its performance, and thus success, is measured in accuracy, workload, usability and trust. While state-of-the-art (STOTA) research lacks the inclusion of...

The platform carrying capacity of urban rail transit stations is limited and overcrowding of the platform will lead to serious safety risks for passengers and trains. It is significant to collaborate on the optimization of passenger flow strategy and skip-stopping scheme to alleviate traffic pressure and ensure platform safety. This study...

Machine learning can be effectively applied in control loops to make optimal control decisions robustly. There is increasing interest in using spiking neural networks (SNNs) as the apparatus for machine learning in control engineering because SNNs can potentially offer high energy efficiency, and new SNN-enabling neuromorphic hardware is being...

The vector field method was originally proposed to guide a single fixed-wing Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) towards a desired path. In this work, a non-uniform vector field method is proposed that changes in both magnitude and direction, for the purpose of achieving formations of UAVs. As compared to related work in the literature, the...

This paper addresses formalisation and computational modelling of context-sensitive control over multilevel organisational learning and in particular the role of the leadership style in influencing feed forward learning flows. It addresses a realistic case study with focus on the role of managers for control of multilevel organisational learning...

Event-triggered control (ETC) is a major recent development in cyber–physical systems due to its capability of reducing resource utilization in networked devices. However, while most of the ETC literature reports simulations indicating massive reductions in the sampling required for control, no method so far has been capable of quantifying...

Meshed offshore grids (MOGs) present a viable option for a reliable bulk power transmission topology. The station-level control of MOGs requires faster dynamics along with multiple objective functions, which is realized by the model predictive control (MPC). This paper provides control, and protection design for the Modular Multilevel...
