1月12日(木)午後に行う 足立研セミナー の内容が変更になりました。

偶然,来日される Imperial College London の田中玲子さん(元 物理情報工学科専任講師)にも急遽講演していただけることになり,セミナーでのスピーカが3名に増えました。ちょっとしたミニシンポジウムの規模になりました。大変豪華な講演者なので,多くの皆様のご参加をお待ちしています。

詳細は以下の通りです。

日時:1月12日(木)15:20~18:00
場所:矢上キャンパス 創想館地下2階 マルチメディアルーム(MMR) 
内容:
15:20 – 15:50 Dr Kentaro Hirata (NAIST)
Title : Gain Scheduling Control Experiment of Balancing Transformer Robot
Abstract : In this talk, the stabilization problem of a balancing robot is considered. Challenging aspects of this project are 1) the robot transforms while maintaining the balance on two wheels and 2) it is made of LEGO Mindstorms. Our main purpose is to demonstrate a “cutting-edge” control technology, that is, the gain scheduling control, by using (an improved version of) friendly toy. Also I would like to summarize the technical machinery underlying this experiment.

15:50 – 16:20 Dr Reiko J. Tanaka (Imperial College London)
Title : Design principles of biological control systems
Abstract : This seminar will present my recent work to investigate common control design principles in two different systems, the gaze stabilization system at the behavioural level in flies and the skin barrier homeostasis regulation system at the cellular-organ level in humans. Through these two examples, I will illustrate two important design principles for biological control: Combination of fast, rough compensation followed by slow, detailed regulation and use of two competing signals (e.g. activators/inhibitors) to flexibly set the homeostatic values.

16:20 – 16:30 Break

16:30 – 18:00 Prof Malcolm Smith (Cambridge University Department of Engineering)
Title : Active versus passive control: new directions for the control of mechanical systems
Abstract : The talk will discuss the contrasting possibilities of active and passive control both abstractly and in the context of automotive suspensions. It will be shown how systems and control thinking can highlight design trade-offs and suggest new approaches which otherwise can remain hidden. The expanded possibilities for passive control using the “inerter” mechanical device will be discussed. Classical results and future directions in passive network synthesis will be highlighted. The talk will be illustrated by examples of practice in Formula One racing.
