Chair's Distinguished Lecture: Safe and Adversarially-Robust Multi-Agent Systems

Thursday, September 10, 2020
4:00-5:15 PM
Off Campus Location
Dimitra Panagou
Associate Professor
Aerospace Engineering
University of Michigan

Planning, navigation and control for multi-agent systems have been fundamental topics of research with numerous applications in unmanned aerial vehicles and robotic networks. Despite significant progress over the years, there are still open challenges due to constraints (in terms of state and time specifications), adversarial or faulty information, environmental uncertainty and scalability. This talk will present some of our recent results and ongoing work on safe and adversarially-robust multi-robot systems. The proposed framework provides provably-correct and computationally-efficient solutions on the mission synthesis of multi-agent systems in the presence of adversarial attacks and spatiotemporal constraints.

About the speaker...

Dimitra Panagou received the Diploma and PhD degrees in Mechanical Engineering from the National Technical University of Athens, Greece, in 2006 and 2012, respectively. Since September 2014 she has been a faculty member with the Department of Aerospace Engineering, University of Michigan. Prior to joining the University of Michigan, she was a postdoctoral research associate with the Coordinated Science Laboratory, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign (2012-2014), a visiting research scholar with the GRASP Lab, University of Pennsylvania (June 2013, fall 2010) and a visiting research scholar with the University of Delaware, Mechanical Engineering Department (spring 2009).
Dr. Panagou's research program spans the areas of nonlinear systems and control; multi-agent systems and networks; motion and path planning; human-robot interaction; navigation, guidance, and control of aerospace vehicles. She is particularly interested in the development of provably-correct methods for the safe and secure (resilient) operation of autonomous systems in complex missions, with applications in robot/sensor networks and multi-vehicle systems (ground, marine, aerial, space). Dr. Panagou is a recipient of the NASA Early Career Faculty Award, the AFOSR Young Investigator Award, the NSF CAREER Award, and a Senior Member of the IEEE and the AIAA.
