In this seminar, Dr. L’Afflitto will present two recent advances in the state-of-the-art in model reference control systems design. The first of these results will concern the design of an adaptive control system that allows the user to impose both the rate of convergence on the closed-loop system during its transient stage and constraints on both the trajectory tracking error and the control input at all times, despite parametric and modeling uncertainties. Successively, our speaker will present the first extension of the model reference adaptive control architecture to switched dynamical systems within the Carathéodory and the Filippov framework. The applicability of these theoretical formulations will be shown by the results of numerical simulations and flight tests involving multi-rotor unmanned aerial systems such as tilt-rotor quadcopters and tailsitter UAVs.
