We use mathematics to control real-world systems better

The research focus of the laboratory is on optimization and control with a current application focus on robotic, mechatronic and renewable energy systems. The core area of expertise are embedded optimization algorithms, i.e. methods for real-time optimization on embedded platforms, with a focus on nonlinear systems. The work of the group spans from dynamic system modelling and optimal control problem formulations to open-source software development and real-world control implementations. The group’s interdisciplinary work is located between numerical mathematics, computer science, and control engineering.
