Enabling smart, high-performance operation of technical systems across technology domains
The mission of the group is to be an internationally recognized centre of research in systems and control, where contributions to fundamental theory are combined with advancing innovative technological applications in a selected number of domains, in cooperation with relevant industrial partners. The fundamental research of CS is directed towards the following research lines:
• Data-driven modelling in dynamic networks
• Modelling and control of linear parameter varying systems
• Spatial-temporal multi-physics systems and model reduction
• Data analytics and machine learning
• Constrained and interconnected systems
• Model-based control and optimization
• Control of cyber-physical systems

Control Systems has four main application domains: High Tech Systems, Automotive, Process industry and Energy. In each of these domains CS collaborates with leading companies contributing our fundamental knowledge to their innovation roadmaps. Often these companies are dominant market players, sometimes world leaders. With most of them CS has already built up a relationship over many years.
Below you can find the listing of most of our industry partners, a description of the innovation topics and a link to project details.
