Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) for Remote Sensing: Applications, Technical Problems and Research Orientations

Abstract: Over the past few decades, remote sensing has established itself as an effective technique for monitoring and data collection across several industries, weather conditions, and geographic locations. UAV technologies have demonstrated their distinct benefits in a variety of remote sensing applications, including precision agriculture, forestry, power transmission lines, buildings, artificial objects, and natural surroundings. UAV remote sensing techniques can be used in precise ground object identification and detection.

This talk considers UAV sensing networks that comprise hardware and networking techniques. The networks' data collecting algorithms are discussed. Advanced data processing methods for networks are also offered. Some control algorithms for deploying and maneuvering the UAVs in such networks are proposed and evaluated. The issues with the UAVs' energy efficiency are discussed and resolved. The presentation will offer some prospective areas for either future developments or research collaborations.

State-of-Charge Estimation of Lithium–Ion Battery Using a Long Short-Term Memory Network

Abstract: Improving the accuracy of state-of-charge (SOC) estimates is essential in electric vehicles using Lithium-Ion batteries, helping users to reliably predict the driving range and control the optimal charging process in order to prolong lifespan and ensure safety during use. However, due to the temperature, and charge-dependent electrochemical nonlinear dynamic of Li-ion batteries, SOC estimation remains a significant technical challenge today. Traditional SOC estimation methods such as the filters, require the cell’s exact model with pre-determined electrochemical characterizations, and filter design and parameter tuning that must be specified to each battery type. In contrast, neural networks are data-driven approaches that require minimal knowledge about the nonlinear dynamics of battery. To help solve this problem, this work proposes a method to solve SOC estimation using a Long Short-Term Memory (LSTM) network that is capable of remembering battery characteristics related to electrochemical parameters changes during the long term, as the number of discharge cycles and the effects of aging increase. The methodology includes data preparation, LSTM network model development, LSTM network configuration tuning, and robust validation of the LSTM against measurement noise. This method is tested to estimate SOC with data collected through the testing data of 3Ah LG HG2 cell, SOC estimation results are also compared with feedforward neural network (FNN) and convolutional neural network (CNN) shows that SOC estimation accuracy of 1% root mean square error.

Advanced Polytopic Observer and Robust Control Design for cyber-Physical Systems

Abstract: The sector nonlinear approach is a useful method allowing for an exact polytopic representation of a system with a nonlinear behaviour. Once the model has been redefined in a polytopic form, one has to choose the right control structure. This talk considers the control design of CPSs (Cyber Physical Systems) and particularly control methods that are robust against attacks in the model, attenuating their effect and ensuring at the same time a reliable state and attacks estimation allowing their detection and isolation while maintaining the system stability, integrity and performances. The considered approach is based on the Lyapunov theory and LMI resolution approach in order to deduce the observers-controller gains. An algorithm based on a robust polytopic controller ensuring the asymptotic stability despite data deception attacks and external perturbations attenuation guaranteed by the norm will be given. In order to illustrate the proposed approach, numerical examples will be given.
