System Identification, Data-based Estimation & Analysis Lab

SysIDEA lab is a multidisciplinary lab that focuses on both the investigation of fundamental ideas in the broad areas of systems and control theory, estimation, data analysis and system identification and their applications to a range of real problems, especially in (but not limited to) the biomechanics domain. The lab consists of a combination of computing resources and bench-top experimental setups (including mechanical, electrical, and robotic systems).
