The Laboratory for Control and Optimization Lab is dedicated to research on control of miniaturized systems. The particular emphasis is on design and control of micro-scale robots remotely actuated by magnetic fields. Magnetic fields generated by electro- or permanent magnets are smartly manipulated to gain precise control over magnetized micro-robots. On the theoretical side, our research is aimed at developing novel control, measurement, and signal processing techniques required for precise positioning of micro-scale particles. On the experimental side, we design and implement physical testbeds to verify the effectiveness of our theory and advance them to applied technology.
