摘要：Control theory and GNSS navigation are now widely used in precise agriculture. Wheeled robots governed by GNSS and inertial sensors do most part of work in agriculture fields. He will talk about the problems of control theory and applied mathematics that arise in the control of agricultural robots. Planning of trajectories, synthesis of control laws, estimation of attraction domains, precise GNSS navigation will be described, as well as mathematical methods involved in solution of these problems.
Dr. Lev B. Rapoport received the B.S. and M.S. in Automatic Control from the Ural Polytechnic Institute, Ph.D. in Control Theory from the Institute of System Analysis of the USSR Academy of Sciences, and Dr. Sci. degree from the Institute of Control Sciences of Russian Academy of Sciences, where he now holds the laboratory head position.
He works primarily in the areas of stability and stabilization of nonlinear control systems and precise navigation. He is the author of more than 100 articles in journals and books, has co-authored one monograph, and coauthored 10 United States patents. He is a member of editorial boards of several journals, including GPS Solutions and Automation and Remote Control. He is a senior research fellow of the Topcon Positioning Systems, the company manufacturing precise navigation and agriculture equipment.
