goals

The availability of modern communication tools opens up the possibility of realizing entirely new control functions in which different components such as sensors, actuators, subsystems to be controlled and controllers are always coupled via information channels, if thereby the observed control task can be better solved as by decentralized controllers without information exchange. This situation leads to a fundamental question:

Which controlled subsystems should be digitally coupled,

so that a given control task can be solved with sufficient quality?

The control theory of networked systems discussed in this course provides modeling, analysis and design methods that can be used to evaluate the value of information for solving control problems and to systematically design the communication structure of networked control.

content

  • Graph theoretical basics
  • Synchronizing control of multi-agent systems

(Application example: control of vehicle platoons) • Self-organization in networked dynamic systems (Example: formation of multirobot systems) • Design methods of the communication structure • Event-based control

The exercises will be held in the CIP pool by using MATLAB. The content of the course includes the handling of project tasks, whereby the submission of the project results is a compulsory condition for the admission to the exam.
