Speech Title: Observer-Based Parametric Designs with Application in Spacecraft Control

Abstract: A parametric multi-objective design method based on robust observer is proposed for the attitude control of satellites with super flexible attachments. Firstly, based on an eigenstructure assignment theory, a parametric observer-based controller is obtained. Under the proposed control law, the closed-loop poles are assigned to desired positions or regions, and fully degrees of freedom of the design, which are characterized by a set of parameters, are preserved. Secondly, the obtained parameters are comprehensively optimized to make the closed-loop system have lower eigenvalue sensitivity, a smaller control gain and stronger tolerance to high-order unmodeled dynamics and external disturbances. Finally, comparative simulations are carried out based on practical engineering parameters of a satellite to verify the effect of the proposed method, and also be superority to the traditional PID controller with filters and the traditional dynamic compensators.

Keywords: parametric design of control systems, multi-objective designs, robust observers, super flexible spacecrafts, parameter perturbations, high-order flexible modes


Prof. Jimmy Liu

Southern University of Science and Technology, China


Prof. Jimmy Liu graduated from the Department of Computer Science of the University of Science and Technology of China in 1988. He further obtained his master and doctoral degrees in Computer Science from the National University of Singapore. In 2004, he started the Intelligent Medical Imaging Research Team (iMED Singapore, A*STAR) and grew it to become one of the world's largest ophthalmic medical image processing team, focusing on ophthalmic Artificial Intelligence research. Jimmy was the chairman of the IEEE Singapore Biomedical Engineering Society in Singapore.
In March 2016, Jimmy returned to China and founded the iMED China (Ningbo) team. He was the senior professor and founding director of the Cixi Institute of Biomedical Engineering (CIBE) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences.
In February 2019, he joined the Department of Computer Science and Engineering of the Southern University of Science and Technology to establish iMED Chi (Shenzhen). He is devoting his time to more fundamental eye-brain imaging, Artificial Intelligence, precision medicine, and surgical robotics research.

Speech Title: Intelligent Ocular Imaging Research and IMED Team latest research update 2020

Abstract: In the talk, Jimmy will update the ocular imaging research work in the past years. He will share his AI-based eye image processing work on various ocular imaging modalities. He will cover the following 4 areas conducted in IMED Team (Singapore, Ningbo and Shenzhen): ocular disease screening, robot assisted eye micro-surgery, ocular biometrics, as well as ocular medical informatics using genome study. He will introduce the current issues, technologies and approaches in this inter-disciplinary research area, and introduce his latest research work in 2019/2020 in details.
