Stabilization and control of aerial manipulators in contact with the environment for on-site measurements
Hameed received his BSc in Electrical Engineering from the University of Engineering and Technology (UET), Peshawar, Pakistan in 2015 and his MS in Electrical Engineering (Control Systems) from the National University of Sciences and Technology (NUST), Islamabad, Pakistan in 2019.
He worked as Research Associate (RA) from March 2018 to September 2021 at UAVs and Robotic Lab at College Electrical and Mechanical Engineering, NUST, where he focused on the design of linear and robust nonlinear control techniques for robotic systems like UAVs, Quadrotor and robotic manipulators.
Currently, he is a PhD candidate at the PRISMA Lab at Department of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology-DIETI, University of Naples Federico II–UNINA. His main research includes modeling and control of aerial manipulators in the presence of external disturbances and aerodynamic effects.
Hameed’s project focuses on the stabilization and control of aerial manipulators in contact with the environment for on-site measurements.
The main objectives of the project are to:
Design a model-based control for an aerial device or an aerial manipulator while interacting with the environment for on-site measurements.
Study aerodynamic hurdles caused by the proximity of the floating platform with the surrounding environment, preventing even simple perching operations.
Develop estimators of unmodelled aerodynamic effects and external disturbances and test them in real life experiments.
