Self-propelling robotic hydrofoil arrays: Mechanics, Efficiency and Optimization (Masters Thesis) This aim of this project was to investigate the swimming performance of multiple robots to study cooperative behavior.

• Designed robotic setups with combination of motors, sensors and microprocessors and performed tests employing real-time radio communication using serial communication.

• Accomplished motion tracking using GPS and IMU, integrated Kalman filters and performed image processing using MATLAB libraries.

• Performed motion planning analysis using geometric mechanics and applied reinforcement learning techniques to intelligently identify navigational sequences thus maximizing thrust and efficiency. Design of an Adaptive Cruise Control System Using Model-Predictive Control This project derived the design of a cruise control system using model predictive control using a realistic non-linear vehicle model.

• Formulated an MPC algorithm that calculates the desired acceleration and deceleration values to the throttle for the ongoing traffic scenario and implemented a PI controller ensures the exactness of these values.

• Applied LQR control technique to minimize the cost function in real-time for each time-step. Piezo-electrically Driven Precision Slide-way System This project involved the design and manufacturing of a novel piezo-electrically driven, mesoscale (palm sized) slide-way system.

• Designed a linear motion table that was driven with an inertial (i.e. stick-slip) drive mechanism and employed a steel-on-steel type bearing system with piezoelectric actuators and manufactured it on a Haas CNC machine.

• Implemented a Proportional-Integral Control strategy and enabled it using LabVIEW and an FPGA embedded system (MyRIO controller) to achieve desired displacements in the nanometer level resolution.
