Allister Furey of University of Sussex and Dr. Lorenzo Fagiano of Politecnico di Torino will present their research activities in the frame of the MSc course Kites, Smart Kites, Control and Energy Production.
The two guest lectures are open to the public and will start at 15:45 in room 1.17 of the Fellowship building of the Aerospace Engineering Faculty, Kluyverweg 1, 2629 HS Delft.
Guest lecture Allister Furey "Using Neural Networks for Kite Control" on 11 May 2010.
Allister Furey is DPhil research student at the Centre for Computational Neuroscience and Robotics (CCNR) of the University of Sussex, United Kingdom. His research is focused on the investigation of biologically inspired approaches to the control of tethered airfoils (kites) for production of renewable energy from the wind.

Guest lecture Dr. Lorenzo Fagiano "Control of tethered wings for high-altitude wind energy generation" on 18 May 2010.
Lorenzo Fagiano received his Ph.D. degree in Information and System Engineering in 2009 from Politecnico di Torino, Italy. He is currently working as a post doctoral researcher at the Department of Control and Computer Engineering (DAUIN). His main research interests include constrained robust and nonlinear control and set membership theory for control purposes, applied to vehicle stability control and high-altitude wind power generation using kites. He has been involved in is the KiteGen project. For more information please visit Lorenzo Fagiano's homepage.
