Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Artificial intelligence
  • Mechanical engineering
  • Electrical engineering

Steven Dubowsky spends much of his time researching Control theory, Control engineering, Mobile robot, Kinematics and Artificial intelligence. His Control theory study combines topics in areas such as Spacecraft and Robot, Robot end effector. His Control engineering study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Mobile manipulator, Motion planning, Payload, Stability and Actuator.

His work carried out in the field of Mobile robot brings together such families of science as Control, Simulation and Estimation theory. Steven Dubowsky works mostly in the field of Kinematics, limiting it down to concerns involving Control system and, occasionally, Workspace, Motion control and Control theory. His study on Robotics is often connected to Feature detection as part of broader study in Artificial intelligence.

His most cited work include:

  • Time-Optimal Control of Robotic Manipulators Along Specified Paths: (1069 citations)
  • The application of model-referenced adaptive control to robotic manipulators (497 citations)
  • Large-scale failure modes of dielectric elastomer actuators (468 citations)

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

Steven Dubowsky mostly deals with Control engineering, Control theory, Robot, Simulation and Artificial intelligence. His studies deal with areas such as Control system, Mobile manipulator, Kinematics, Motion planning and Actuator as well as Control engineering. Steven Dubowsky works mostly in the field of Control theory, limiting it down to topics relating to Spacecraft and, in certain cases, Attitude control, as a part of the same area of interest.

In the subject of general Robot, his work in Mobile robot, Robotic spacecraft and Robot control is often linked to Architecture, thereby combining diverse domains of study. His research in Simulation intersects with topics in Vibration, Control and Robotic systems. He interconnects Point and Computer vision in the investigation of issues within Artificial intelligence.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Control engineering (33.58%)
  • Control theory (33.21%)
  • Robot (25.18%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2010-2018)?

  • Photovoltaic system (5.11%)
  • Reverse osmosis (3.65%)
  • Robot (25.18%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

Steven Dubowsky mainly focuses on Photovoltaic system, Reverse osmosis, Robot, Solar energy and Control engineering. Steven Dubowsky has included themes like Actuator and Computer vision in his Robot study. Actuator is a subfield of Control theory that Steven Dubowsky investigates.

His Control theory research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Joint, Inverse kinematics and Solar concentrator. His Solar energy research integrates issues from Parabola, Parabolic reflector and Finite element method. Borrowing concepts from Energy recovery, Steven Dubowsky weaves in ideas under Control engineering.

Between 2010 and 2018, his most popular works were:

  • Three-dimensional thermal modeling of a photovoltaic module under varying conditions (87 citations)
  • On the feasibility of community-scale photovoltaic-powered reverse osmosis desalination systems for remote locations (80 citations)
  • Photovoltaic reverse osmosis — Feasibility and a pathway to develop technology (46 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Artificial intelligence
  • Mechanical engineering
  • Electrical engineering

Photovoltaic system, Reverse osmosis, Desalination, Process engineering and Solar energy are his primary areas of study. His Photovoltaic system research incorporates themes from Electrical network, Estimation theory, Electronic circuit and Thermal. The Reverse osmosis desalination research he does as part of his general Reverse osmosis study is frequently linked to other disciplines of science, such as Environmental engineering, Controller design, Function and Systems engineering, therefore creating a link between diverse domains of science.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Permeation, Forward osmosis and Fouling. His Process engineering research includes elements of Waste management, Thermal control, Overheating and Solar power. His Solar energy study combines topics in areas such as Concentrator, Optics and Finite element method.
