Faculty members working in the areas of control/autonomous systems at IIT Kanpur propose to organize the
National Workshop on Control Techniques and Applications at IIT Kanpur during 19 - 23 September, 2016. Various control techniques are widely used in aerospace systems, robotics, and process automation. With the recent focus being on developing autonomous vehicles for carrying out sophisticated tasks, understanding system identification, state estimation and control techniques has gained importance. The proposed workshop will aim at introducing the participants to advance control techniques, system identification methods, and their applications to aerospace systems like quadrotors, fixed-wing vehicles, and helicopters. The workshop is expected to have participants who are working or willing to work in control theoretic applications from electrical, mechanical, and aerospace engineering.
