Integral Line-of-Sight Path Following Control of Magnetic Helical Microswimmers Subject to Step-Out Frequencies

no code implementations29 Apr 2021 Alireza Mohammadi, Mark W. Spong

Due to the embedded integral action in the reference vector field, the microswimmer will follow the desired straight line by compensating for the drift effect of the environmental disturbances as well as the microswimmer weight.

Quadratic Optimization-Based Nonlinear Control for Protein Conformation Prediction

no code implementations27 Apr 2021 Alireza Mohammadi, Mark W. Spong

The resulting kinetostatic control torque inputs will be close to the KCM-based reference vector field and guaranteed to be constrained by a predetermined bound; hence, high-entropy-loss routes during folding are avoided while the energy of the molecule is decreased.
