IEEE CSS seminar with topic of "Insulation Fault Detection in Buried Power Cables: A Feedback Control Application"
Congratulations to Donald Ebeigbe for receiving the CSU Graduate Student Research Award
Doctoral candidate Donald Ebeigbe has received a $4,000 award from the Office of Research for his project “Control of Rigid Robots with Large Uncertainties.” Donald’s research objective is to improve the state-of-the-art in robot control theory, especially in cases when the robot model cannot be derived. His new control development could enhance the control of robots by guaranteeing desired performance over a range of system uncertainties or disturbances. Donald’s award will provide him with funds for salary, conference travel, and equipment.
Congratulations to Saman Khademi for receiving the CSU Graduate Student Research Award
Doctoral candidate Saman Khademi has received a $4,000 award from the Office of Research for his project “Environmentally Aware User Intent Recognition of Amputees with Lower-Limb Prostheses Using Deep Learning.” Seamless user-prosthesis interaction is an important challenge in above-knee powered prostheses. Saman’s research objective is to develop deep learning approaches that can fuse non-invasive user-aware and environmentally aware sensors. Saman’s research could enable powered prosthesis function to approach the robustness, safety, and performance levels of the natural human leg. Saman’s award will provide him with funds for salary, conference travel, and equipment.
