  • Center for Cyber-Physical Systems and Internet of Things and Ming Hsieh Institute Seminar

    Speaker: Ricardo G. Sanfelice, Computer Engineering, University of California at Santa Cruz

    Talk Title: Hybrid Feedback Control with Robotic Applications

    Series: Center for Cyber-Physical Systems and Internet of Things

    Abstract: Hybrid systems have become prevalent when describing complex systems that mix continuous and impulsive dynamics. For instance, in cyber-physical systems, continuous dynamics usually govern the evolution of the physical variables in the system, while impulsive (or discrete) behavior is typically due to events in the control algorithm or in the communication network. A mathematical framework comprised of differential and difference equations/inclusions with constraints will be introduced to model, analyze, and design such systems. An appropriate notion of solution and basic properties on the system data will be introduced. Tools for the analysis and synthesis of robust hybrid feedback control systems will be presented. The talk will provide an overview of tools guaranteeing asymptotic stability, invariance, safety, robustness, and the satisfaction of temporal logic specifications. Recent development on hybrid model predictive control and relevant robotic applications will be highlighted.

    Biography: Ricardo G. Sanfelice is Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of California at Santa Cruz, CA, USA. He received his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in 2004 and 2007, respectively, from the University of California, Santa Barbara. During 2007 and 2008, he was a Postdoctoral Associate at the Laboratory for Information and Decision Systems at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and visited the Centre Automatique et Systemes at the Ecole de Mines de Paris for four months. Prof. Sanfelice is the recipient of the 2013 SIAM Control and Systems Theory Prize, the National Science Foundation CAREER award, the Air Force Young Investigator Research Award, the 2010 IEEE Control Systems Magazine Outstanding Paper Award, and the 2012 STAR Higher Education Award for his contributions to STEM education. He is Associate Editor for Automatica and has served as Chair of the Hybrid Systems Technical Committee from the IEEE Control Systems Society. He is Director of the Cyber-Physical Systems Research Center at UCSC. His research interests are in modeling, stability, robust control, observer design, and simulation of nonlinear and hybrid systems with applications to robotics, power systems, aerospace, and biology.

    Speaker: Gen(ret) Ellen Pawlikowski, USC

    Talk Title: Learning From the Past

    Abstract: Department of Defense acquisition programs are the means that new capabilities are developed, acquired and fielded to support military operations. These programs can span decades as they often include evolving complex systems of systems. New practitioners (program managers and engineers) tend to get overwhelmed and at the same time discover that the tools to apply such information to their current task are deficient or lacking. In todays world of ever growing complexity and increasingly compressed timelines, there is seldom enough time to gain the depth and breadth of experience needed. This recognition provides the impetus to leverage case studies as an experience accelerator. Case studies provide tools for acquisition practitioners to learn from the experience of those program managers and systems engineers that preceded them. This presentation provides a foundation for conducting and using case studies in systems engineering and management.

    Biography: General (retired) Ellen M Pawlikowski is an independent consultant providing expertise on strategic planning, program management, logistics, and research and development. She is the Judge Widney Professor at the Viterbi School of Engineering at the University of Southern California. She serves on the Boards of Directors for the Raytheon Company, Intelsat SA, Applied Research Associates, and SRI International. Ellen Pawlikowski was the third woman to achieve the rank of General in the US Air Force. In her last assignment, she served as Commander, Air Force Materiel Command, Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio. The command employs some 80,000 people and manages $60 billion annually, providing the Air Force with research and development, life cycle systems management, test and evaluation, installation support, depot maintenance and supply chain management.

    She entered the Air Force in 1978 as a distinguished graduate of the ROTC program at the New Jersey Institute of Technology, Newark, NJ. She then attended the University of California at Berkeley as a Fannie and John Hertz Foundation fellow and received a Doctorate in chemical engineering in December 1981.

    General Pawlikowski's career has spanned a wide variety of technical management, leadership and staff positions. She commanded five times as a general officer, commanding the MILSATCOM Systems Wing, the AF element of the National Reconnaissance Office, AF Research Laboratory, the Space and Missile Systems Center, and Air force Materiel Command. She also served as the program director and program executive officer for several multibillion dollar military system acquisitions.

    General Pawlikowski is nationally recognized for her leadership and technical management acumen. Among her recognitions are the Women In Aerospace Life Time Achievement Award, the NDIA Peter B Teets Award, and the Air Force Association Executive Management Award. She is a Honorary Fellow of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, a Fellow of the Directed Energy Professional Society, and a member of the National Academy of Engineers.

    Ellen Pawlikowski was born in Bloomfield, NJ and currently resides in Macon, GA.
