Stochastic Adventures in Systems and Controls - CANCELLED

Behrouz Touri

Abstract In this talk, we visit two systems and controls problems with stochastic components. The first problem, relates to the control of safety critical autonomous systems. We provide a necessary and sufficient condition reachability result for an open and bounded safety set. In particular,... Read More

Distributional Uncertainty: From Quantification to Decision Making

Shuo Han

Abstract Stochastic phenomena are playing an increasingly important role in the analysis and design of modern engineering systems. However, these stochastic phenomena are often difficult to capture using parametric models. In this talk, I will discuss an alternative modeling approach by making use... Read More

Control of Large Scale Cyberphysical Systems

Abhishek Halder
Postdoctoral Research Associate Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering

Abstract Consider the problem of controlling the temperatures of large population of homes by a service provider via smart thermostats over internet, or that of designing an automated traffic management system to integrate drones in the national airspace. Problems such as these exemplify modern... Read More
