Prof. Lisa Fiorentini
I am a Clinical Associate Professor in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at The Ohio State University, and Associate Fellow at the Center for Automotive Research (CAR). I received my BS and MS in Electrical Engineering from Universita' Politecnica delle Marche, Italy, in 2003 and I received my MS and PhD from The Ohio State University in 2007 and 2010, respectively, under the supervision of Prof. Andrea Serrani. From 2010 to August 2013 I worked as Research Associate and Senior Research Associate at the Center for Automotive Research at The Ohio State University. In August 2013 I have joined thhe ECE department as a Faculty member. My research interest lies in the field of control and system theory: nonlinear and adaptive control; robust control; modeling; tracking and regulation problems; system analysis and optimization. UGVs control: optimal task assignment; mission-level path planning; SLAM; high-level and low-level control. Embedded systems and sensor fusion. Autonomy in vehicles. Control applications in robotics, aerospace and automotive engineering.
Welcome to my website
As one of the three ECE faculty that runs the ECE MS Program, I created this website
1. for prospective MS students to explore what opportunities they will be offered in our Department and at OSU;
2. for our current MS students to find answers to some FAQs and to learn about the ongoing projects they can join; and
3. for all Companies, Research Labs or Professors that want to build a partnership with our MS Program.
BuckeyeVilleThe scope of the project is to build a mini smart city, BuckeyeVille, that resembles the OSU campus. In this smart city, miniature autonomous vehicles will be able to move around mimicking self-driving cars. Each miniature autonomous vehicle will be assigned a different task (e.g. | LEARN MORE
Pixhawk Autopilot ProjectAutonomous vehicles are transforming communication, transportation, and warfare technologies. In particular, small drones and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) are becoming popular devices within reach of the public. Drones are increasingly affordable... | LEARN MORE
Rattlesnake DetectionThe purpose of this project is to develop an efficient and reliable method to detect Massasaugas, federally threatened rattlesnakes found in Ohio, using multispectral imaging. Over the summer, a large set of multispectral images of the rattlesnakes... | LEARN MORE
UAV Multispectral ImagingThe project focuses on the development of a UAV platform-based multi-sensor system for early detection and monitoring of powdery and downy mildew in cucurbit crops. Cucurbit Downy Mildew (DM) and Powdery Mildew (PM) are some of the most important... | LEARN MORE
LED Lighting Performance TestingLight-emitting diodes (LEDs) are used every day more in airfield lighting applications due to their potential benefits to pilots and airport operators. One major benefit is the potential to provide more reliable operations and reduce maintenance... | LEARN MORE
As part of their Degree requirements, our MS students are asked to work on either a research topic or a hands-on project. The main goal of this Lab is to provide research and innovation through project-based learning experience. We want to offer the new generations of ECE MS students real-world challenging projects that will allow the students the gain some high level hands-on experience while contributing to their research field.
