Distributed Control and Estimation in Networked Environments

Project Member(s): Mao, G.

Funding or Partner Organisation: National ICT Australia
University of Sydney (University of Sydney - funding source)

Start year: 2014

Summary: A key research challenge is to develop theoretical tools for the design and analysis of distributed estimation and control schemes suitable for distributed dynamical systems with network connected sensors and actuators. On occasions these can be very large scale and/or nonlinear, and the sensors may be moving, e.g. as a formation of UAVs. This project examines a number of key research problems within this field typically related to the control and estimation of distributed sensor systems. Collaboration with Australian Defence is also undertaken throughout this project with a number of key collaborators within DSTO, and these collaborators specify subprojects derived from particular scenarios from time to time, the latest of which is in software radio and its possible application to target localisation. This is a continuation of a pre-NUCA project. The standard NICTA IP agreement applies for all NICTA affiliated partners. DSTO affiliated partners are covered under an existing NICTA/DSTO umbrella agreement.
