At the IEEE Conference on Control Technology and Applications 2022 (CCTA), our colleague Julian Dahlmann received the Outstanding Student Paper Award for his paper „Trajectory Optimization for Truck-Trailer Systems Based on Predictive Path-Following Control“. Congratulations to Julian!

After being awarded the "Ernst-Blickle-Studienpreis" in May, our employee Julia Kowalewski received another award for her outstanding master degree. The "Department EEI Master Award" was presented during the 45th "Tag der EEI" of our department on July 22, 2022. Congratulations!

At the graduation ceremony of the Faculty of Engineering on July 1, 2022, our employee Lars Ullrich received the Baumüller Holding GmbH & Co. KG Graduate Award for the mechatronics course in 2022. The award honors Lars for his master thesis "Analyzing the effect of design choices in Model-Based ...

Last Saturday, the LRT participated in the Long Night of Sciences with the event "Control in Technology and Robotics - invisible, but omnipresent". Various experiments encouraged the visitors to experience and understand the field of control technology with the help of their own intervention or oper...

On May 6th, 2022, our employee Julia Kowalewski was awarded the Ernst Blickle Study Prize 2021 of the SEW-EURODRIVE Foundation for her master thesis "Model predictive control of the circulating currents for a modular multilevel converter". The award ceremony took place in the castle in Bruchsal. We ...

In the DFG project "Cooperative manipulation with two-armed robots near the load limit", methods for control, trajectory and path planning are being developed in order to move large and heavy objects with two robotic arms. In particular, the redundant actuators should be used to fully utilize the av...

Since the beginning of May, Lars Ullrich has strengthened our team at the Chair of Automatic Control as a new research assistant. Lars will deal with the consistent consideration of uncertainties in nonlinear systems.

We are pleased to welcome Thore Wietzke and Maximilian Dio as new employees at the chair from April. Thore will deal with the agent-based control of complex energy systems in non-residential buildings, Maximilian works in the area of control and motion planning for two-armed robot manipulation.
