Marcus Greiff
  • Biography

    Marcus' doctoral research focused on the control system design of unmanned aerial vehicles. During this time, his work on estimation theory with MERL was acknowledged with a best student paper award at the IEEE CCTA conference. Marcus' research interests concern nonlinear control using Lyapunov and Matrosov theory, nonlinear estimation, optimal control and motion planning, and their interplay when applied to robotics and aerospace systems.

    •  AWARD    Marcus Greiff receives Outstanding Student Paper Award at CCTA 2022
      Date: August 25, 2022
      Awarded to: Marcus Greiff
      MERL Contact: Marcus Greiff
      Research Areas: Control, Dynamical Systems, Robotics
      Brief
      • Marcus Greiff, a Visiting Research Scientist at MERL, was awarded one of three outstanding student paper awards at the IEEE CCTA 2022 conference for his paper titled "Quadrotor Control on SU(2)xR3 with SLAM Integration". The award was given for originality, clarity, and potential impact on practical applications of control. The work presents a complete UAV control system design, facilitating autonomous supermarket inventorying without the need for external motion capture systems. A video of the experiments is on YouTube, including both simulations and real-time examples.

    •  AWARD    Best Student Paper Award at the IEEE Conference on Control Technology and Applications
      Date: August 26, 2020
      Awarded to: Marcus Greiff, Anders Robertsson, Karl Berntorp
      MERL Contacts: Karl Berntorp; Marcus Greiff
      Research Areas: Control, Signal Processing
      Brief
      • Marcus Greiff, a former MERL intern from the Department of Automatic Control, Lund University, Sweden, won one of three 2020 CCTA Outstanding Student Paper Awards and the Best Student Paper Award at the 2020 IEEE Conference on Control Technology and Applications. The research leading up to the awarded paper titled 'MSE-Optimal Measurement Dimension Reduction in Gaussian Filtering', concerned how to select a reduced set of measurements in estimation applications while minimally degrading performance, was done in collaboration with Karl Berntorp at MERL.
