Center for Mechanics and Control

Center for Mechanics and Control

Research at the Center for Mechanics and Control is diverse and spans basic theory, computational methods, design, experimental methods, advanced prototypes, and collaboration with industry to develop flight experiments. The following areas are being pursued: navigation, guidance, and control of aerospace vehicles; dynamical modeling, simulation, and optimization; probabilistic analysis and optimization; estimation theory; aeroelasticity and fluid/structure interaction; autonomous intelligent control of robotic systems; intelligent sensors, sensor networks and real-time inference; spacecraft constellations and formations; uninhabited aerial vehicles; and cooperative robotics – design. The Center’s research has been realized in successful software, hardware, and commercialization.
