The main focus of the Institute of System Dynamics and Control is the requirement driven, system dynamically holistic design, optimal feedforward and robust feedback control of complex safety critical systems for spaceflight systems, aircraft, road, railway and planetary vehicles, as well as industrial robots.
Institute of System Dynamics and Control
Building of the Institute of System Dynamics and Control
The rapid progress in the fields of microprocessors, sensors and software technology makes it possible to implement intelligent and efficient control functions in mechatronic systems. The Institute of System Dynamics and Control works on the enhancement and application of advanced control methods, in view of improving performance, energy efficiency, safety and comfort in complex controlled systems.
