Adaptive LQ control with antiwindup augmentation to optimize UAV performance in autonomous soaring applications
(2008)The performance of a glider can be considerably improved by means of soaring and optimization of its trajectory. Recent advances in the area of static soaring assume known linear glider dynamics and no actuator saturation ...

The capacity of unstable dynamical systemsinteraction of control and information transmission
(Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Inc., 2017)Feedback capacity is extended beyond classical communication channels, to stochastic dynamical systems, which may correspond to unstable control systems or unstable communication channels, subject to average cost constraints ...

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 ...
