Description

The objectives of this subject are to develop the student's theoretical and practical understanding on active and passive sensing and feedback control techniques in mechatronic and robotic systems, ability to select and evaluate sensors, process the sensor data, and apply computer-based tools for practical control system design using the sensory information. Topics include visual imaging and image processing, infrared imaging, time of flight (TOF) measurements, detection and tracking, state-space modelling of linear systems, stability, controllability and observability, linear quadratic control, observer design, H-infinity control, and model predictive control. Case studies of engineering applications are used to illustrate and examine these concepts.
