Welcome to the website of the Laboratory for Innovations in Sensing, Estimation and Control (LISEC). The research in our laboratory focuses on the design of devices, estimation algorithms and controllers for smart and autonomous systems.
Specific major areas of research in our lab have included
- Estimation algorithms and control systems for intelligent vehicles, active sensing and estimation on smart bicycles, imminent collision detection sensors, vehicle tracking algorithms for complex traffic on urban roads and highways, tire-road friction coefficient estimation, and development of novel traffic-friendly commuter vehicles.
- Fundamental development of observer design algorithms for nonlinear systems, and of estimation algorithms for fault diagnostics, unknown input estimation, resilience, and cyber-attack detection.
- Smart and autonomous biomedical systems: Wearable sensors, estimation algorithms for wearable analysis of arm and leg motion, automated activity recognition and automated food intake monitoring.
- Design of handheld diagnostic instruments and associated estimation algorithms for medical applications.
Our lab's research skills cover a broad range of mechanical engineering including development of estimation algorithms, observer design for nonlinear systems, development of new sensing principles, control system design, vehicle dynamics and analysis of noise and vibrations.
