Networked Control and Robotics
Research on Networked Control and Robotics spans a wide variety of related topics with theoretical as well as practical relevance. On the networked control side, research involves control and task planning of multi-agent systems under sensing and communication constraints.
Robotics research involves theory and application for autonomous (multi-agent) systems task planning and control in unknown and dynamic environments. The considered platforms include mobile robots (which may be also manipulator endowed), aerial vehicles and underwater robots. Further application domains include Human-Machine-Interaction and social networks. The developed theoretical results involve elements from nonlinear and robust control, decentralized systems, hybrid control and formal methods for controller synthesis. The research in this domain is sponsored by a number of EU (ERC, H2020, FP7) and national projects (KAW, VR, Vinnova, SSF).
