ECE Assistant Professor Nuno Martins (ECE/ISR) is the recipient of a 2007 National Science Foundation Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Award for "Distributed control of dynamic systems using a wireless communcation medium: two new paradigms."

Dr. Martins' research will introduce two new paradigms for designing distributed control systems with wireless communication capabilities. Because most mobile wireless communication technologies feature interference, fading and power constraints, analyzing and designing these kinds of networked control systems is significantly more difficult than for wire-line systems. His research will introduce two new paradigms to aid in such design. Networked preview control specifies a framework consisting of a wireless network of spatially-distributed sensors and one controller. Given a disturbance field, networked preview control aims at using the remote sensors to provide the controller with disturbance preview information. Design of cooperative control strategies for a mix of mobile and static agents aims to attain pre-specified communication objectives.

The NSF CAREER program fosters the career development of outstanding junior faculty, combining the support of research and education of the highest quality and in the broadest sense.
