Control, Intelligent Systems & Robotics


Research in the CISR group in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) can be split into three tracks which are all multiple and cross disciplinary; Control, Intelligent Systems and Robotics. Due to the multi-faceted nature of these areas, the group has attracted collaboration from a wide and diverse range of industrial companies and research institutions, both locally and abroad, in applications including but not limited to manufacturing, automation, health science, transport, build environment, financial analysis and other service sectors. The group has set up a joint laboratory with Singapore Institute of Manufacturing Technology (SIMTech) in precision motion control systems which actively conducts research in high-speed precision motion control and energy-efficient manufacturing systems, with interests in projects relating to micro-machining, precision metrology, precision geometrical and thermal compensation, fault tolerant control and accommodation, predictive analytics.

 

Research Focus



Control


The research of the Control subgroup is centered on systems and control. The core strengths are on system control methodology, and industrial applications. The current focus of system control methodology includes adaptive systems, switched & hybrid systems, robust control, and nonlinear control. The current focus of industrial applications includes process control for chemical engineering and semiconductor manufacturing systems, precision mechatronics for data storage systems, precision medical systems, unmanned aerial vehicles.

Intelligent Systems


The research of the Intelligent Systems subgroup focuses on computational and machine intelligence. The core strengths are on computational intelligence based optimization, and machine learning based applications. The current focus of computational intelligence based optimization includes multi-objective evolutionary optimization methods for engineering design problems. The current focus of machine learning based applications includes classification and diagnosis of biomedical signals, machine health condition diagnosis & monitoring.

Robotics


The research of the Robotics subgroup is centered on autonomous robotic technology. The core strengths are on robot design and control. The current focus of robotic technology includes industrial robot, social robot, biped humanoid robot, healthcare robot, and network robotics. The synthesis of control theory and robotic technology yields multi-agent systems, guidance and navigation.
