Doctor Khaled’s Ph.D. thesis dealt with guidance and control of under-actuated ships. He modeled the dynamics of the ship under various environmental conditions in Simulink. Furthermore, he designed a patent-protected guidance system for autonomous operation of under-actuated ships. Then, he coupled the guidance system with a set of robust controllers to assess the overall performance of the system. To simplify debugging the full dynamic model of the ship and its interaction with wave, wind and current, he animated the system in Virtual Reality. Moreover, he captured these animations as video files which helped him in explaining the complex model of the ship, the randomness of the waves, the robustness of the coupled system of controllers and the guidance system to the audience of various conferences in which he presented his work. He also taught several linear control courses and used the Virtual Reality as a tool to illustrate the various applications of automatic control. Currently, He works in Cummins as a senior controls and diagnostics research engineer. He uses Virtual Reality to animate the dynamics of certain systems and actuators and these animations serve as demonstration videos for the systems.
