Welcome to the Chair of Information-Oriented Control!
At the Chair of Information-oriented Control we focus in research and teaching on the control and optimization in cooperative, networked, and distributed dynamical systems. We develop novel methods and tools for the analysis and control of such systems, which in particular consider model uncertainties as well as uncertainties and limitations in the data acquisition, communication, and computation.
We concentrate on the application in human-robot-teams, haptic assistance, cyber-physical systems, and infrastructure systems. While our core competency is in control engineering, we have some interdisciplinary collaborations with the fields of psychology (in human-robot interaction) and communications (in networked control systems). Many of the developed methods are experimentally validated in our multi-robot lab.
