2017 American Control Conference
I just returned from the 2017 American Control Conference in Seattle, Washington, where I co-chaired the Robust Control I session and presented some recent work on optimal, observer-based, conic controller design. I presented some recent research on nearly-optimal conic-sector-based control that I worked on with James Forbes, from McGill University. Claus Danielson, from MERL, presented the continuation of our work on MPC for switched systems. As always, it was great to catch-up with colleagues at other universities and learn about research happening across the continent.
