Meet Dr. Edin Omerdic, Roboticist Extraordinaire!
Edin was born in Tuzla, Bosnia and Herzegovina in 1968. Edin has received the Dipl. Eng. and M.S. degree in electrical engineering from the University of Zagreb, Zagreb, Croatia, in 1997 and 2001 respectively, and Ph.D. in electrical engineering from the University of Wales, Newport, South Wales, United Kingdom in 2004. He is currently a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Mobile & Marine Robotics Research Group, University of Limerick, Limerick, Ireland. His research interests include nonlinear ship motion, design of intelligent autopilot for ship control, implementation of neural networks and fuzzy logic in intelligent systems, development and design of fault diagnosis and accommodation system for over-actuated open-frame underwater vehicles, and development and design of guidance, navigation and control system for AUVs. Edin has just completed his latest project, the MPPT Ring. MPPT Ring is a multipurpose platform product, which enables easy system integration, planning, simulation, training, fault tolerant control, enhanced operator interface, auto enhanced survey execution and offline analysis of subsea operations.
