题目：Neurodynamics based tracking control of autonomous ground, water surface, underwater and aerial robots
主讲人：Simon X. Yang(杨先一)教授（加拿大Guelph大学）
Abstract: Research on biologically inspired intelligent systems has made significant progress in both understanding the biological systems and developing bionic engineering applications to information processing and systems control. In this talk, I will start with a brief introduction to neurodynamics based approaches. Then, I will focus on our recent research on neurodynamics based tracking control of various robotics systems, including autonomous mobile robots, water surface robots, underwater robots, and unmanned aerial robots.
Short Biography: Prof. Yang received the B.Sc. degree in engineering physics from Beijing University, China, in 1987, the first of his two M.Sc. degrees in biophysics from Chinese Academy of Sciences, Beijing, China, in 1990, the second M.Sc. degree in electrical engineering from the University of Houston, USA, in 1996, and the Ph.D. degree in electrical and computer engineering from the University of Alberta, Edmonton, Canada, in 1999.
