The 750-square-metre TechLab offers unique research and testing opportunities

With an area of 750 square meters, the TechLab at the Institute of System Dynamics and Control offers unique research and test opportunities.

The DLR Institute of System Dynamics and Control focuses on the development and application of efficient system simulations and intelligent control systems for space and robotic systems, aircraft, and road and rail vehicles. The goal of method and tool development is to robustly increase the performance, efficiency, safety and comfort of controlled systems. The validation of simulation models and control procedures using test facilities, flight trials and driving evaluations plays an important role in the research work.
