If a system state trajectory starts in a control invariant set C, it will be always possible to find an admissible control input keeping the system state trajectory within C. Hence, if the system constraints are defined w.r.t. to the required performance (e.g., maximum accepted bounds on the tracking errors), control invariant sets can be used to design control laws with performance guarantees. In this talk, we will highlight some computational aspects related to control invariant sets and present recent results from their applications to a lateral vehicle dynamics control problem and to the control of a multi-vehicle system over a wireless network.</div> <div><br /></div> <div>In Level-5 autonomous vehicles, a human driver will not be available to back up the vehicle control system anymore. Hence, the overall autonomous driving system should be designed in order to provide performance and safety guarantees. In this talk, we will consider the problem of designing a vehicle lateral motion control algorithm with guaranteed bounds on the lateral deviation from a desired path. Such a problem can be easily solved by resorting to Model Predictive Control (MPC) techniques, where a terminal control invariant set is needed to persistently guarantee that the deviation from the path is within the desired bound. Nevertheless, the complexity of the representation of such terminal control invariant sets can dramatically increase the resulting controller complexity. We will show how low-complexity invariant sets can be derived thanks to newly developed methods and how these can be used as an additional tuning tool to trade o the MPC controller complexity for the size of its feasibility set.</div> <div><br /></div> <div>The next challenge, beyond high-level autonomous driving, is the cooperation of autonomous vehicles, which is expected to fully enable the potential of autonomous driving technologies and impact the society. Nevertheless, the safety and performance issues arising from the tight coupling between information losses and delays and the control system stability and performance must be accounted for at the design stage. Starting from a multi-vehicle coordination problem at tra&#14;c junctions, which has been experimentally demonstrated, we will motivate a joint communication and control paradigm, where a central coordinator decides upon control inputs to a set of dynamical systems and their access to the communication channel. We will show a few results from numerical examples and new research directions.</div> <div><br /></div> <div><div>Keywords</div> <div>Constrained control, Vehicle lateral control, Multi-vehicle systems, Networked control systems, Joint communication and control design</div></div></div></div> at Chalmers – fill the gap between women and men on Wikipedia<p>Biblioteket, library building,</p><p>​On 29 August, the Ministry of Enterprise and Innovation, together with Chalmers University of Technology and Wikimedia Sweden, invites you to an equal writing workshop where we, in the context of #WikiGap, highlight women in research and innovation on Wikipedia. On-site is Minister for Enterprise and Innovation Mikael Damberg, Vice President of Chalmers Anna Dubois and a representative from Wikimedia Sweden.</p>​<img src="/SiteCollectionImages/Forskning/Main-logo-1-300x200.jpeg" class="chalmersPosition-FloatRight" alt="" style="margin:5px" />On Wikipedia today there are about four times as many articles about men as there are about women, and around 90 percent of all those who write on Wikipedia are men. But WikiGap makes a difference. So far, the initiative, which has been ongoing since 8 March 2018, has generated about 3,000 new articles and updates of information. <br />29 August is the time to raise remarkable and famous women in research and innovation and we hope you want to join us! <br /><br />It doesn't matter if you have been editing on Wikipedia before, since you will get support in both English and Swedish. You can write in English or your native language. Everyone is welcome as long as focus is on female scientists and innovators. Which female reesearcher/innovator do you miss on Wikipedia? If you don't have a list of your own, you will be given suggestions on women who lack an article and articles which are suitable to update or translate. There will also be librarians on site to help out with references.<br /><br />You need to bring your own computer. A Swedish &quot;fika&quot; will be provided during the afternoon. <br /><br />Date: August 29, 2018<br />Time: 12: 30-16: 00<br />Location: Chalmers library, campus Johanneberg.<br /><br /><strong>REGISTRATION</strong><br /><a href=""><img class="ms-asset-icon ms-rtePosition-4" src="/_layouts/images/icgen.gif" alt="" />Register to #WikiGap through this link.</a><br /><br /><strong>PHOTO STUDIO DURING WIKIGAP:</strong><br />We will fill the gap when it comes to uploaded images on Wikimedia Commons, which is Wikipedia's image database, too.

Other specific issues that will be covered include various high-throughput sequencing techniques and bioinformatics approaches for data analysis.<br /><br /></em></strong></div> <div>Invited speakers will provide a cutting-edge perspective on methods currently available for omic approaches on biofilms research that are revolutionizing our understanding of microbial diversity, microbial processes, species interactions and their link with ecosystem functioning and ecosystem services, when faced with different environmental stressors (e.g. chemical pollutants, ocean acidification, salinity, elevated temperature, etc.).<br /><br /></div> <div>The workshop will include lectures, poster presentations and discussion meetings. It will provide an opportunity for professionals and students to be updated on state-of-the art of important omic approaches, define the main research priorities in the field for the next few years, and continue or initiate collaborations between research groups with the ambition of increasing the impact of research on biofilm ecology and ecotoxicology on a European scale.<br /><br /></div> <div>The meeting will be held at Sven Lovén Centre for Marine Infrastructure – Kristineberg at the University of Gothenburg. Kristineberg are located by the Gullmar fjord and offers a nice and creative environment for workshops and inspiring meetings as well as offering comprehensive marine infrastructure.
