Research in Automatics
The research activity in automatics conducted by the MAIAA laboratory focuses on the following topics:
- conduct of flight (nonlinear control, robust adaptive control) with applications to UAV, and automatic tracking of separation instructions (relative guidance, sequencing of aircraft on approach)
- flight safety (failure detection sensors / actuators, soft crash)
- air operations (fleet management, crew), and more generally the problems of resource allocation in the air traffic management (airport capacity, ground facilities), which we apply methods from Operations Research.
