Our research focuses on conventional control techniques, plus the practical methods of navigation, guidance and communications. We build on expertise in our Departments of Electronic & Electrical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering, and the Centre for Power Transmission and Motion Control. We will investigate the practical challenges of mapping and localisation.

Key topics

  • advanced control techniques
  • coordination of multiple platforms
  • robust control
  • coordination and mapping with AUVs: path planning driven by map and 3D image construction
  • bio-inspired control strategies and techniques
  • real-time control
