Funding: Postdoc research stays at the Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava
Principal investigator: prof. Ing. Miroslav Fikar, DrSc.
Project description:The aim of the proposed project is to investigate and design new procedures in automation and control to increase profits, safety, competitiveness with simultaneous reduction of costs and energy consumption. It will focus on optimal and model predictive control. The main stress will be on synthesis of controllers with low implementation complexity so that these controllers can be implemented in real-time on hardware platforms commonly used in industry without needs of upgrade. The project will also focus on guarantees of safe and optimal operation of designed control algorithms in networked environment between controllers and sensors/actuators with aims to detect and prevent adverse influences of attacks to communication channels in the context of Internet of Things. Theoretical results of the project will be available to a broader audience in software tools and their suitability will be verified in laboratory conditions.
