Title Bio-Inspired Intelligent Sensing Materials for Fly-by-Feel Autonomous Vehicle.
Publication Date Aug 2012
Media Count 68p
Personal Author N/A
Abstract Advantages of UAV: Loser cost in manufacturing, reduced cost in maintenance and operation, energy saving for smaller size and minimal human risk. Goals: To develop an analytical technique for observability and controllability of large-scale, dynamic systems. To develop a bio-inspired data/information architecture for feature-based global diagnostics of a large- scale system. To develop a bio-inspired, feature-based reconfigurable control system to maintain vehicle functionality in the presence of system failures. Design a testbed to assess MURI team research results.
