Adaptive bounding techniques for stable neural control systems
(IEEE, 1995)This paper considers the design of stable adaptive neural controllers for uncertain nonlinear dynamical systems with unknown nonlinearities. The Lyapunov synthesis approach is used to develop statefeedback adaptive control ...

Adaptive control of a class of slowly time varying systems with modeling uncertainties
(2005)In a recent work, a new linear adaptive controller based on certaintyequivalence and backstepping design, which promises a level of transient and asymptotic performance comparable to that of the tuning functions adaptive ...

Adaptive control of linear time varying systems
(1996)A new class of adaptive controllers for linear time varying systems is designed and analyzed using nonlinear design techniques and the certaintyequivalence approach. It is established that this new class of controllers ...

Article
Bank filters for ML parameter estimation via the ExpectationMaximization algorithm: The continuoustime case
(1998)In this paper we consider continuoustime partially observed systems in which the parameters are unknown. We employ conditional moment generating functions of integrals and stochastic integrals to derive new maximumlikelihood ...

Centralized, decentralized, and overlapping control designs for a segmented telescope
(IEEE, 1999)The accurate control of the segments of large segmented telescopes to achieve the desired shape could open the way for the construction of much larger telescopes with much better capabilities. In this article, we consider ...

Article
Comparision of spacing and headway control laws for automatically controlled vehicles
(1994)This paper investigates two different longitudinal control policies for automatically controlled vehicles. One is based on maintaining a constant spacing between the vehicles while the other is based upon maintaining a ...

Computational intelligence in management of ATM networks: a survey of current state of research
(1999)Today, a number of researchers are looking at alternative nonanalytical control system design and modeling techniques that have the ability to devise effective, robust ATM network management schemes. Such schemes employ ...

Article
Control techniques for a large segmented reflector
(1998)NASA has founded a project to design and construct a testbed in the Controls and Structures Laboratory at the California State University to study the complex dynamic behavior of large segmented optical systems. The ...

Decentralized fault accommodation of a class of interconnected nonlinear systems using an adaptive approximation approach
(2009)This paper presents a decentralized adaptive approximation design for the fault tolerant control of interconnected subsystems. We consider faults that occur in the subsystems local dynamics as well as in the interconnection ...

Article
Design of strictly positive real systems using constant output feedback
(1999)In this paper, the authors present a linear matrix inequality (LMI) approach to the strictly positive real (SPR) synthesis problem: find an output feedback K such that the closedloop system T(s) is SPR. The authors establish ...

Entrainment and vehicle following controllers design for autonomous intelligent vehicles
(American Automatic Control Council, 1994)Entrainment and vehicle following controllers are proposed for autonomous intelligent vehicles in both nontight and tight vehicle following maneuvers. A nonlinear vehicle model is used for designing the controllers. The ...

Article
Identification and high bandwidth control of hard disk drive servo systems based on sampled data measurements
(2007)One of the key factors that determines the track density of a hard disk drive (HDD) is the performance characteristics of the HDD servo system, the control system that positions the READ/WRITE magnetic head close to the ...

Article
Minimally actuated fourbar linkages for upper limb rehabilitation
(2018)In the previous years the scientific community dealt extensively with designing, developing and testing robotbased rehabilitation systems. Besides the benefits that resulted for disabled people, this twentyyear endeavor ...

Multiobjective H2/H∞ by banach space operator theory
(2001)In this paper Banach space duality theory and operator theory are combined to show that the optimal performance index in the multiobjective H2/H∞ is equal to the operator induced norm of a particular operator. This operator ...

Article
A new linear adaptive controller: Design, analysis and performance
(2000)The certainty equivalence and polynomial approach, widely used for designing adaptive controllers, leads to "simple" adaptive control designs that guarantee stability, asymptotic error convergence, and robustness, but not ...

Roadway traffic controller design for automated highway systems
(IEEE, 1994)For manual driving, the traffic flow is often irregular, unstable leading to congestion and to low traffic flow rate during minor incidents. These irregularities are due to variation of vehicle speeds and headways that are ...
