Current Research Projects

  • Research and development of vehicular networked control systemsThis project aims to produce theoretical and experimental results on the influence of network protocols over the performance of embedded control systems. Some questions will be deeply investigated, such as the communication channel delays and the data package dropout, and how they can jeopardize a control loop that uses such channel to transport the measurements and commands. The idea is to study proper control techniques to circumvent such problems, guaranteeing closed loop stability and performance.

  • Modeling, Simulation and Control of  Vehicular Systems: The objective os this project is to perform studies concerning techniques, technologies and algorithms related to modeling, control and simulation of vehicular systems… to be continued!
