EE 858 Intelligent Control

Spring 2003

Instructor: Prof. Kevin Passino 416 Dreese Laboratory, Phone: 292-5716,

Office Hours: Stop by any time (but try to set an appointment)

Course Book/Notes: This course is taught out of the book: K. Passino, Biomimicry for Optimization, Control, and Automation, the web site of which you can go to by clicking here.

Relevant Texts (not needed for this course but both are available for a free download by clicking here):

  1. Kevin M. Passino and Stephen Yurkovich, Fuzzy Control, Addison Wesley Longman, Menlo Park, CA, 1998.
  2. Antsaklis P.J., Passino K.M., eds., An Introduction to Intelligent and Autonomous Control, Kluwer Academic Publishers, Norwell, MA, 1993.

Course Objectives:

The course will involve (i) gaining an understanding of the functional operation of a variety of intelligent control techniques and their bio-foundations, (ii) the study of control-theoretic foundations (e.g., robustness), (iii) learning analytical approaches to study properties (especially stability analysis), and (iv) use of the computer for simulation and evaluation. The objective will be to gain a "hands-on" working knowledge of several of the main techniques of intelligent control and an introduction to some promising research directions.

Outline: Topics to be covered include:

Grading: Homeworks, Projects, Final examination


Scheduling: This course is offered in Spring Quarter of odd numbered years
