  • Ramaswamy, Deepa (1995)
    The automation of highways as part of the IVHS program is seen as a way to alleviate congestion on urban highways. This thesis discusses the concept of lane assignment in the context of automated highway systems (AHS). ...

  • Veillette, Robert Joseph (1990)
    This thesis presents a new method of decentralized linear, time-invariant control system synthesis based on the algebraic Riccati equation (ARE). The basic decentralized design guarantees closed-loop stability and a ...

  • Paz, Robert Alex (1991)
    This thesis presents new methods of robust control synthesis. Using the Frobenius-Hankel (FH) norm as an optimization criterion, a straightforward approach is obtained for computing controllers that have constraints on the ...

  • Diong, Billy Ming (1992)
    This thesis considers the problem of guaranteeing robust stability as well as performance for plants that can be modelled as linear systems which are perturbed by nonmatching disturbances and parametric uncertainties. The ...
