Welcome to 

Intelligent and Precision Control Laboratory (IPCL)

The IPCL focuses on designing and developing strategies for intelligent and yet high performance control of precision electro-mechanical/hydraulic systems. Current research areas include: Nonlinear adaptive robust control, Energy-saving nonlinear control of electro-hydraulic systems, Intelligent control of precision high-speed linear motor drive systems, machine tools, and piezo-electric actuators for precision manufacturing, Ultra precision control of laser micro-machining processes, Nonlinear control of high-density hard disk drives, Coordinated control of robot manipulators, and Nonlinear observer design and Neural networks for virtual sensing, modeling, fault detection, diagnostics, and adaptive robust fault-tolerant control. The lab comprises of an energetic group of students and scholars and is headed by Prof. Bin Yao of the School of Mechanical Engineering.
