We are authors of a new paper in the prestigious international scientific journal Computers & Chemical Engineering:
Peter Bakaráč - Michaela Horváthová - Lenka Galčíková - Juraj Oravec - Monika Bakošová: Approximated MPC for embedded hardware: Recursive random shooting approach
The paper presents a nearly-optimal control suitable for implementation on the embedded hardware with limited energy resources. The publisher Elsevier provides open access to new research articles for 50 days to help share the current results.
Dr. Martin Klaučo and Karol Kiš participated in the 18th IFAC Workshop on Control Applications of Optimization, which took place at Centrale Supélec, Paris-Saclay University on July, 18-22. Karol Kiš gave a lecture on:
Karol Kiš - Peter Bakaráč - Martin Klaučo: Nearly Optimal Tunable MPC Strategies on Embedded Platforms
and Dr. Martin Klaučo was the chairman of the session: Optimization-Based Applications.
On July 26, 2022, a workshop was held in room NB641 in cooperation with prof. Y. Shardt from TU Ilmenau. Two lectures were given. The workshop was open to all participants.
Habilitation lecture and defence of the habilitation thesis Ing. Martin Klaučo. PhD. took place on July 1, 2022.
Together with our colleagues from ShanghaiTech University, China and Automatic Control Laboratory, EPFL, Switzerland, we published a new research paper in the international scientific journal IEEE Control Systems Letters:
Jiahe Shi - Yuning Jiang - Juraj Oravec - Boris Houska: Parallel MPC for Linear Systems with State and Input Constraints
The paper presents a distributed MPC design method for systems with input and state constraints. The illustrative case study demonstrates the significant reduction of the runtimes necessary to solve the optimization problem compared to the conventional MPC design approach.
On June 24, IAM took a part in the CHEMSHOW - Open Door Day at the Faculty of Chemical and Food Technology STU in Bratislava.
On June, 23 we organized a seminar "Department of Information Engineering and Process Control - milestones and challenges". The event was organised on the occasion of the 60th anniversary of IAM.
The STU InQb, the organiser of Startup Pitch, awarded the project "AI - Automatic Irrigation". IAM alumni Trieu Hai Nguyen was a member of the awarded team. Congratulations!
On Tuesday (June, 21) IAM students: Lukáš Hospodár, Vanesa Madleňáková, Oliver Mészáros, Martina Ostrihoňová, and Monika Řeřuchová, have successfully defended their bachelor theses. Congratulations!
The 13th IFAC Symposium on Dynamics and Control of Process Systems, including Biosystems (DYCOPS) was held in Busan, the Republic of Korea on June 14-17, 2022. The conference was held as a hybrid event with both in-person and virtual participation. Dr. Radoslav Paulen participated in the conference as a representative of IAM with the contribution:
A. R. Gottu Mukkula - R. Paulen: Robust Design of Optimal Experiments Considering Consecutive Re-Designs.
The presented contribution is a result of a cooperation of our institute with Technische Universität Dortmund.
