Illinois researcher awarded $1.5 million to develop adaptive control method for enhanced aviation safety

NASA recently awarded Naira Hovakimyan, a professor of mechanical science and engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, $1.5 million to develop an integrated reconfigurable controller for vehicle resilience (iReCoVeR) that will enhance next-generation aviation safety. The iReCoVeR architecture is based on Hovakimyan’s L1 adaptive control methodology, which is a promising technology for loss-of-control … Read more…
