Dr Edin Omerdic received the Dipl. Eng. and M.S. degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Zagreb, Croatia, in 1997 and 2001, respectively. In 2001 he joined the Mechatronics Research Centre, University of Wales, Newport, UK and took part in the EPSRC funded IMPROVES project. He received his PhD in Electrical Engineering from the University of Wales in 2004, with the thesis titled “Thruster Fault diagnosis and Accommodation for Over-actuated Open-frame Underwater Vehicles”.
Edin is currently employed by the University of Limerick as a Senior Research Fellow at the Department of Electronic and Computer Engineering. He is engaged in numerous research projects funded by the Higher Education Authority and the Marine Institute in the area of submersible robotics, he is also the main developer & designer of OceanRINGS concept & software suite, including design of state-of-the-art control architecture for ROV LATIS.Edin's research interests include modelling & simulation of dynamic systems (marine platforms, ocean dynamics & disturbances), renewable energy, real-time simulators, virtual reality, development and design of guidance, navigation and control system for marine vessels, nonlinear control systems, implementation of soft-computing techniques in intelligent systems, underwater robotics, fault-tolerant systems.
Up to date he has 16 journals, 5 book chapters, 2 books, 47 papers in conference/workshop proceedings, 7 invited lectures, 4 keynote/plenary talks, 4 tutorials, 22 presentations & technology demonstrations, 2 articles in business magazines, 2 online articles and 1 desk study.
