Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Control theory
  • Mechanical engineering
  • Electrical engineering

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Control theory, Control engineering, Feed forward, Motion control and Robot. Jan Swevers regularly ties together related areas like Machine tool in his Control theory studies. The Control engineering study combines topics in areas such as Actuator and Overhead crane.

His work deals with themes such as Inverse system, Compensation and Linear motor, which intersect with Feed forward. His study in Motion control is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Control system and Function. His work on Industrial robot and Robot kinematics as part of his general Robot study is frequently connected to Model implementation, thereby bridging the divide between different branches of science.

His most cited work include:

  • An integrated friction model structure with improved presliding behavior for accurate friction compensation (532 citations)
  • Optimal robot excitation and identification (373 citations)
  • The generalized Maxwell-slip model: a novel model for friction Simulation and compensation (370 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

His primary areas of investigation include Control theory, Control engineering, Nonlinear system, Mathematical optimization and Control theory. Jan Swevers works mostly in the field of Control theory, limiting it down to topics relating to Robot and, in certain cases, Torque, as a part of the same area of interest. His research in Control engineering intersects with topics in Control system, Control and Actuator.

His Nonlinear system study frequently draws connections to other fields, such as Algorithm. His studies deal with areas such as Spline, Counterweight, Linear system and Convex optimization as well as Mathematical optimization. His Optimal control study incorporates themes from Motion planning, Model predictive control and Motion control.
