Welcome to the Chair of Information-Oriented Control!

Ordinaria: Univ. Prof. Dr.-Ing. Sandra Hirche

At the Chair of Information-oriented Control we focus on research and teaching of control and optimization of cooperative, networked, and distributed dynamical systems. We develop novel methods and tools for the analysis and control of such systems, taking particularly into account model uncertainties as well as limitations pertaining to acquisition of data, communication, and computation.

We apply our methods mainly to human-robot-teams, haptic assistance, cyber-physical systems, and infrastructure systems. While our core competence is 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.
