NSF sponsoring study on networked systems

Professors Tuncel and ChenElectrical Engineering faculty members Jie Chen (r.) and Ertem Tuncel (l.) have received a three-year grant from the National Science Foundation for their project “Fundamental Performance Limitations of Networked Control Systems”. Chen is Principal Investigator (PI) and Tuncel is Co-PI. The project addresses fundamental bottlenecks and limitations when networked systems are transmitting control and communication signals in remote locations. Examples are space satellites or equipment such as the Mars Rover that are controlled from Earth; adverse conditions such as noises and other interference may cause signals to be jammed or delayed, allowing the equipment to wander on its own while waiting for instruction. This program brings together experts in the fields of information theory and control, to fuse ideas and advances in each. After first identifying and quantifying bottlenecks and limitations, strategies and techniques to mitigate them will be designed. The project will also have a strong educational component, offering direct participation of graduate and undergraduate students and developing related seminars and design courses.
