Mastering complex Systems
We want automobiles to run smoothly and safely, we want to create a pleasant living atmosphere in buildings, and we want to understand and optimise the flow of traffic in urban road networks.
What do these very different topics have in common?
It is about complex, interconnected systems that are controlled, optimised and monitored with our mathematical methods. The availability of powerful computers enables the realisation of sophisticated concepts in control engineering, such as model-based optimal control, non-linear system identification or state estimation.
In all these areas, the research unit of Control and Process Automation continuously contributes to application-oriented basic research. In this way, we create a broad knowledge base in order to solve current problems that have already been identified, on the one hand, and to offer new possibilities and approaches to solutions for future challenges, on the other.
