Advances in Unknown Input Observers Design: Linear, Nonlinear and Infinite-dimensional Systems

Unknown Input Observers are a powerful tool for robust estimation and fault-diagnosis in control systems. Their key feature is that, based on some algebraic/differential conditions, the corresponding estimation error can be made decoupled from unknown inputs driving the system dynamics. This talk will provide an overview on some results pertaining the design of Unknown Input Observers in several interesting and challenging setups: linear systems with redundant inputs and application to fault-tolerant control allocation, fully nonlinear systems, hybrid systems with state-driven jumps and systems governed by partial differential equations. Examples of applications arising from the field of robotic systems will be discussed and used to better illustrate the features of this special class of state observers.
Dr. Andrea Cristofaro received the M.Sc. in Mathematics from Sapienza University of Rome in 2005 and the PhD in Information Science and Complex Systems from University of Camerino (Italy) in 2010. After some years spent in France (INRIA Grenoble) and Norway (NTNU and University of Oslo) holding different academic positions, in 2019 he joined the Department of Computer, Control and Management Engineering, Sapienza University of Rome, where he is currently an Assistant Professor (RTD-B). Dr. Cristofaro is author of more than 100 scientific papers, and he serves as Associate Editor for Journal of Intelligent & Robotic Systems (Springer) and IEEE Transactions on Control Systems Technology (starting Jan 2023). He is also member of the IEEE CSS Conference Editorial Board and of the Board of Experts of the European Science Foundation. He is recipient of a Marie-Curie fellowship, and his main research interests include: fault-tolerant control, observers for linear and nonlinear systems, multi-agent and multi-robot systems, control of distributed parameter systems.
