37th International Summer School of Automatic Control - Advanced algorithms for traffic prediction and control (Septembre,12-16 - 2016)

This Summer School aims at presenting the main mathematical tools which allow modelling, predicting and controlling the traffic, starting with the classical ones to the most advanced ones, including optimal routing and cooperative ITS.  (More info. here)


ERC Scale-FreeBack

Scale-FreeBack is an ERC Advanced Grant 2015 awarded to Carlos Canudas-de-Wit, Director of Research at the National Center for Scientific Research, (CNRS) covering the period september 2016-2021. Scale FreeBack is motivated by observation that systems have become far more complex than the analytical tools available for managing them. The overal aim is to develop holistic scale-free control methods for controlling complex networks in the widest sense and set foundations for a new control theory dealing with complex physical networks with arbitrary size.

Team presentation

NeCS is an Inria/GIPSA-lab joint team-project (initiated in January 2007) supported by the CNRS, Inria, INPG and UJF. The team goal is to develop a new control framework for assessing problems raised by the consideration of new low-cost and wireless technological components, the increase of systems complexity and the distributed and dynamic location of sensors (sensor networks) and actuators; in this framework, control design is performed under general resources constraints including communication, computation, and energy. In that, the team targets an innovative step forward in the feedback design for networked distributed systems by the development of combined control, computing and communication (3C).

The team is bi-located at Inria Grenoble Rhône-Alpes (Montbonnot Saint Martin) and at the GIPSA-lab (at the Grenoble campus in Saint Martin d'Hères).
