Background and activities

Anders Albert has a Master in Science and Technology from the department of Engineering Cybernetics at NTNU. In his master thesis: "Disturbance Attenuation in Managed Pressure Drilling", Anders studied the use of a pressure controller to maintain a constant pressure in the bottom of a drilling well with a moving platform. Through work with his Master, Anders gained experience working in an experimental lab and he ended up with two publication based on his work.

The title of Anders Albert’s PhD thesis is “Mission and path optimization sensor network”. Here Anders is researching the use of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) for different operations in the Arctic. In the Arctic, there is a limited coverage by satellites. At the same time, there is a demand for ice management. An important part of ice management is surveillance. We can use UAVs both directly for surveillance of ice and iceberg or collecting information from sensors distributed in a network. In any case, path planning for the UAVs is necessary. Anders researches algorithms for optimal path planning.
