Developed methods of compensating for time varying transport delays.· Implemented a platform for simulation, analysis and control of systems and processes with time varying transport delays. (Chemical and mechanical processes)· Modeled and simulated a Wide Area Network using NS-2, MATLAB and SIMULINK. · Developed system identification and prediction techniques.· Developed control algorithms for hybrid systems.· Investigated the applicability and performance of traditional PID controllers in systems with time varying delays.· Developed and simulated adaptive predictive control techniques for streamed media over best-effort networks and other systems and processes with time varying delays.
Analytically derived the kinematics and dynamic equations of a robot. · Used the dynamics to identify the physical parameters and used them to analytically develop methods for control of the robot. · Simulated the robot using both MATLAB and Mathematica.
Developed an interface and control system for a microwave oven as a term project for Mechatronics. · Designed an airfoil as a project for the undergraduate course Fluid Mechanics.· Designed Kalman filter for determining velocity and acceleration given the position of a robot arm.
