Adaptive Control Systems

Investigation of complex dynamical systems that require adaptation, learning, and control. Research is conducted in adaptive control theory (control of imprecisely known systems, data-based as well as model-based), and applications (e.g., Evolving Systems, Wind and Congestion Control in nano-Satellite Networks).

Firefighting Robot

The vision systems research is currently focused on the development of a firefighting robot. The tasks at hand include overall awareness of the fire and local environment, flame-front detection, tracking, and prediction, obstacle avoidance, and self-preservation.  [More]

Parallel Robotics Group

The University of Wyoming Parallel Robotics Research Group is actively investigating the design and application of parallel robots for precision pointing and vibration isolation. This research was initiated by Drs John E. McInroy and John O'Brien, based on their experience at the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory. The UW HEX, pictured above, is a second generation design, owing much of its structure and refinement to NASA JPL's hexapod. The research conducted at the University of Wyoming has been sponsored by numerous federal agencies over the past fifteen years.  [More]

Space Situational Awareness

Current projects include computer vision, congestion control, routing, and optimal transmission rate determination on nano-satellite network for Space Situational Awareness (SSA).

Wind Turbine Research

Wind turbines are complicated systems with characteristics that substantially restrict control system feedback: variable plant parameters, nonminimum phase zeros, adjacent pole pairs at low frequency, actuator delay and other factors.  [More]
