报告题目：Robust Adaptive Learning for Marine Control
报告摘要:Offshore operations have been moving towards ultra-deep waters, more challenging environment and arctic areas where richer resources are detected and to be mined. One of the unavoidable challenge we have to cope with is the large amount of shielding effects due to Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) in the vicinity. We are not only interested in designing control systems for the floatel system which is highly robust and adaptive to the environmental impacts while maintaining/increasing the uptime of operations between the floatel and FPSO, but also to provide guidelines in designing the next generation floatel for the industry. In this lecture, I will first give an introduction of the robust adaptive learning control systems, then go through modelling and control of subsea installations. Multi-agent cooperation is in great demand driven by the need for sea. Formation control for marine surface vessels is next introduced. I also would like to conclude my lecture by presenting an experiment on autonomous surface vessel to address technical issues industry faces.
