  • Dr. Anna Clarke
  • Guest seminar
  • Auditorium 235, second floor, Aerospace Eng. Building
  • Department of Aerospace Engineering
  • Technion – Israel Institute of Technology
  • The talk will be given in English

It is very interesting to analyze skydiving from a perspective of control engineering. Skydiving includes two stages:

(1). Performing solo and cooperative aerial maneuvers in free-fall by changing the body posture and thus deflecting the surrounding airflow;

(2). Piloting and landing a high-performance RAM Air parachute. In this talk we will explain the challenging aspects of both stages, describe the on-going research and most interesting results, and outline the future research opportunities.

Light refreshments will be served before the lecture
