Adeel Akhtar

PhD. Candidate, University of Waterloo

I am a PhD student in the Waterloo Autonomous Vehicles Lab at the University of Waterloo where I work with Prof. Steven Waslander. My current research area is nonlinear path following control and estimation of quadrotrs.

I completed my Masters (MASc) degree from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at University of Waterloo working with Professor Christopher Nielsen in the area nonlinear control design of planer mobile robots using transverse feedback linearization. My MASc thesis titled dynamic path following controllers for planer mobile robots. I did my undergraduate in Mechatronics Engineering at College of Electrical and Mechanical Engineering, National University of Sciences & Technology, Rawalpindi, Pakistan. After his undergraduate he worked in Advanced Engineering Research Organization, Pakistan, as a research engineer for three years

 I'm a member of the WAVE Lab, and the NCFRN Field Robotics Network.

Research & Projects

My current research interests are in nonlinear control and estimation, path following, autonomous system, unmanned aerial and ground robots, and dynamical systems. My other research interests are in theoratical nonlinear control, real analysis, measure theory, and differential geometry. Few of research projects are
