Brickyard (BYENG) 210, Tempe campus [map]


Alberto Speranzon of the Honeywell Aerospace Advanced Technology Group presents an overview of autonomous systems topics he has pursued in his research for the last five years. Specifically, he will cover work done on navigation using qualitative information, multi-objective path planning under localization constraints, mission level planning and recent novel methods for modeling, abstraction and analysis of complex systems of systems. Additionally, he will touch upon more “classical” tools, such as filtering and optimization, with new emerging mathematical methods from areas such as algebraic topology and category theory

About the speaker

Alberto Speranzon received the ‘‘Laurea’’ degree in computer engineering from University of Padova, Italy in 2000, and a Ph.D. in automatic control from the School of Electrical Engineering, Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Stockholm, Sweden in 2006. In September 2015, he joined Honeywell Labs in Minneapolis, MN, where he is a research scientist. At Honeywell, Speranzon works on autonomous systems, leading such research area as program manager and principal investigator, and is involved in a NASA-sponsored project aimed at developing novel methodologies for systems of systems design and analysis. He is an associate editor of the IEEE Transactions on Control Systems Technology and part of the Technical Program Committee of various conferences in the area of cyber–physical systems, robotics and networked control systems.
