Engineering Cybernetics

Engineering Cybernetics is the interdisciplinary study and automatic control of dynamic systems like aircraft, marine craft, robots, automotive systems, electrical circuits, biological systems, process plants, etc. and their behavior. Cybernetics is closely related to control theory and systems theory. This includes the principles of feedback control and associated stability analysis.

Methods that are central for the research at the department include:

  • Optimization based control and estimation, including model predictive control
  • Nonlinear control and estimation
  • Identification, and adaptive control and estimation
  • Modeling and analysis of dynamical systems
