Resarch at ISY, Control Systems
Research in Automatic ControlThe division works with a broad spectrum of problems in control, modeling and signal processing and aims at a good and productive balance between theoretical developments and industrial applications. System identification, which is the area of building mathematical models from observed input and output signals, is a prime target for analysis and development of methods and algorithms. Other areas of theoretical studies are nonlinear dynamical systems, sensor informatics (how to best process information from different sensors), and optimization in control applications (in particular modeling of predictive control). Modeling and control of industrial robots, sensor fusion, and decision support for automotive and aeronautical vehicles are important application areas of industrial relevance.
The picture illustrates uncertainty in a position estimate, which is a central issue in target tracking, localization and navigation.
