P.S. Krishnaprasad gives Bode Lecture


On Friday, Dec. 14, Professor P.S. Krishnaprasad (ECE/ISR) gave the Bode Lecture at the 46th IEEE Conference on Decision and Control in New Orleans. The lecture is part of the honor Krishnaprasad received for winning the 2007 IEEE Control Systems Society Hendrik W. Bode Prize. The prize was developed by the IEEE Control Systems Society to recognize distinguished contributions to control systems science or engineering.

Krishnaprasad spoke on "Pursuit and Cohesion: in Nature and by Design," discussing the geometric patterns in certain pursuit and prey capture phenomena in nature, and suggesting sensorimotor feedback laws that explain such patterns. As his example, Krishnaprasad talked about recent research with echolocating bats conducted with Kaushik Ghose, Timothy Horiuchi, Eric Justh, Cynthia Moss, and Viswanadha Reddy. |Read the abstract for this lecture at the conference web site |
