Eindhoven is the high-tech systems capital of the world. The increasing complexity of and performance demands on high-tech systems, such as lithography machines, electron microscopes, industrial printers, semi-conductor equipment, and many more, urges for novel technology on model-based engineering, design and automation. The Dynamics and Control group contributes to the development of the high-tech systems of the future by fundamental and applied research on the following focal areas:
- Multi-physics (dynamical) modelling and simulation of high-tech systems
- Data- and model-based diagnostics for high-tech applications (fault detection and isolation and predictive maintenance)
- (Data-based) performance optimization of high-tech systems
- Complexity management of multi-physics and cyber-physical models to support model-based system engineering for high-tech equipment
- Hybrid (model- and data-based) control of multi-physics systems (for example including aspects such as high-precision positioning, vibration mitigation, noise control, and thermal and flow control)
- Mechanical design of high-tech equipment.
The Dynamics and Control section fosters a strong collaboration with industrial high-tech industry in the Eindhoven Brainport region and with the Eindhoven Artificial Intelligence Systems Institute and the High-Tech Systems Center of TU/e.
