About Me

Welcome to my personal website!

I am Phang Swee King, currently a Lecturer in Taylor's University Malaysia. The main focus of this personal website is on academics. Description of my past and current research projects are the main contents in this site. Also, various modules I have taken during my Undergraduate and Post-Graduate studies in the National University of Singapore are listed with attached laboratory reports and homework assignments. You are welcome to download any material from this section, as a reference for your experiments or projects. Other than that, some personal information is also given in this site.

I have received my Ph.D in Electrical Engineering in the NUS Graduate School for Integrative Sciences and Engineering (NGS) in 2014. I worked in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering as a Research Fellow before switching to Temasek Laboratories @ NUS in 2015 as a Research Scientist until early 2018. Currently, I am teaching modules related to control systems and project based designed modules in Taylor's University. My main research focus is on developing micro-UAV for indoor and outdoor applications. Feel free to browse around my homepage, or contact me at sweeking.phang@taylors.edu.my for any question regarding my research and teaching.

Research Interests

Judging from the current development of unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), autonomous aerial vehicles are about to play major roles in tasks like reconnaissance for search and rescue, environment monitoring, security surveillance. Their mobility and sensing capabilities advantages over ground robots make them the ideal platform for exploration, mapping, and monitoring tasks. If they are further realized in small scale, they can even be used in narrow outdoor and indoor environments, and they represent only a limited risk for the environment and people living in it.

Motivated by the mentioned points, I have gained passion in develop micro-unmanned aerial vehicle (MAV) as my research topic. My work includes 3 main areas: construction, control theory application, and navigation. More information on my research interests can be found in this website.
