Seminar on Intermittent Control in Man and Machine, 30th April, at 2pm, F121

Henrik Gollee from the School of Engineering will talk about Intermittent Control in Man and Machine

Title: Intermittent Control in Man and Machine

Abstract:

An intermittent controller generates a sequence of (continuous-time) parametrised trajectories whose parameters are adjusted intermittently, based on continuous observation. This concept is related to “ballistic” control and differs from i) discrete-time control in that the control is not constant between samples, and ii) continuous-time control in that the trajectories are reset intermittently. ┬áThe Intermittent Control paradigm evolved separately in the physiological and engineering literature. The talk will give details on the experimental verification of intermittency in biological systems and its applications in engineering.

Advantages of intermittent control compared to the continuous paradigm in the context of adaptation and learning will be discussed.
