Professorship Control Systems

The Chair of Control Systems conducts research on methods for human-machine cooperation, on methods for designing sustainable energy systems of the future, and on techniques for achieving functional process reliability. At the methodological core are mutually feedback subsystems characterized by different degrees of autonomy. One focus is on negotiation theories in control engineering, such as how data can be used to infer the negotiation itself. We bring these methods to bear on cooperative automobiles, human-robot collaboration, e.g., for the care of the elderly, or the optimal operation of multi-energy systems. Our strength lies in the perfect combination of in-depth basic research with application-oriented innovation research, for example in cooperation with industrial partners.
