A system is a group of interacting elements and the aim of “control” is to achieve the desired system behaviour. From physical systems such as robots, drones and vehicles to signal processing such as musical signals and images, anything that has dynamics can be a candidate for the systems to be controlled. Our laboratory studies Systems and Control theory and various applications in this area. In particular, we work on networked systems and multi-agent systems such as vehicle platooning and cooperative drones. Each agent in such a system can only collect some partial information in the network such as the position and/or speed of the neighbouring agents, and our task is to control the behaviour of the whole network under such constraints. We also work on vibration control such as vibration suppression for multi-storey building subjected to an earthquake, and digital signal processing.
