Research Interests
Our group is working on:
  • Cooperative Control in Human-Cyber-Physical Systems (H-CPS)
  • Distributed Optimization/Game for Societal Cyber-Physical Systems (S-CPS)
In particular, we study in an effort to work out fundamental principles to render highly-networked control systems totally optimal and/or robust state via distributed decision-makings. The targeted applications of H-/S-CPS include energy management systems, smart cities, human-robotic networks and visual sensor networks.
