FocusThe research team has been working on several aspects of automatic control science and technology, in relation to both basic research and industrial applications. The activity is divided into four areas: Control design, Model identification and data analysis, Automation of vehicles and transportation systems, Automation of energy systems. The research in the first two areas includes a variety of aspects, ranging from methodologies to computational techniques and simulation studies. In both areas, besides applications via well-assessed methodologies, the main effort is devoted to cutting-edge theoretical developments. The third area covers applications in automotive and aerospace control and ranges from single vehicle control to multi-vehicle coordination and air traffic management. The fourth one covers some topics in energy generation, distribution and management.
