Dynamics and Control Lab
The focus of the Dynamics and Control Lab is on the design of complex dynamical systems and methods for controlling such systems using feedback. Examples include autonomous drones and (self-stabilizing) boats. The lab is used regularly in the Engineering Design and Problem Solving course (EID101), and the Modern Control (ME451) courses. In addition, the lab is used to develop hands-on projects and demos that supplement courses (ME200, ME351). For example, a small drone is used to illustrate the design process for a feedback controller. The space is also used for research by Master students, independent research studies, and senior projects (ME393).
