MnDRIVE Seminar Series in Control and Robotics
The MnDRIVE Initiative and its focus on
Robotics, Sensing, and Manufacturing presents a unique opportunity to engage
students, faculty, and industry, and exchange ideas and experiences in these
interdisciplinary research topics within the overarching theme of Control and
Dynamical Systems. To this end, our objective is to organize a seminar series
that builds on the ongoing activities within the Control Science and Dynamic
Systems (CSDy) Center at the University of Minnesota. The CSDy Center is one of
the earlier centers at the University of Minnesota, founded by the late
Professors E. Bruce Lee and Larry Markus in 1963, and it has played a pivotal
role ever since in driving research and education in the controls area across
the nation. Through the years the focal activity of the Center has been a CSDy
Seminar Series which brought resonance among faculty and students. The objective
of the MnDRIVE Seminar Series in Control and Robotics is to go above and beyond
the current model by fostering further interaction between university and
industry and by promoting future collaborative and entrepreneurial efforts. We
aim to provide an invaluable educational forum for our graduate students by
brining in leading researchers and industrial talent to Twin Cities campus.
