Please join us for this fall's University of Maryland Distinguished Scholar-Teacher Lecture by Professor Derek A. Paley, Department of Aerospace Engineering

"Collective Behavior in Bioinspired Autonomous Robots"

Thursday, October 22, 2020
4:00-5:00 PM

 Online via Zoom

Paley directs the Collective Dynamics and Control Laboratory and is the faculty advisor of the Autonomous Micro Air Vehicle Team, a student competition team that recently took second place in the Vertical Flight Society’s competition. Paley’s wide research interests cover three main areas. In the field of dynamics, estimation, and control he explores the cooperative control of autonomous vehicles, particularly groups of autonomous robotic fish. In the field of mobile sensor networks he conducts research into the adaptive sampling of spatiotemporal processes. He is also interested in biocomplexity and bioinspiration, particularly the quantitative modeling of animal groups and behavior.

ABOUT THE SERIES: The Distinguished Scholar-Teacher Program, established in 1978, honors a small number of senior faculty who have demonstrated outstanding success in both scholarly accomplishment and excellence in teaching. Distinguished Scholar-Teachers make a presentation, open to the public, on a topic within their scholarly discipline.
