Carlos Canudas-de-Wit has been awarded an ERC Starting Grant 2015. This award will enable him to expand his research in the control of large scale complex systems.
The ERC Scale-FreeBack project (Scale-free Control for Complex Physical Network Systems) is a project with innovative theoretical goals in view of the new opportunities presented by the large-scale sensing technologies. Scale-FreeBack envisions devising a complete, coherent design approach ensuring the scalability of the whole chain (modelling, observation, and control).
Carlos, who manages the NECS project team and is the director of research at CNRS, Carlos Canudas de wit been an automation specialist for more than 20 years; his research on the control of networked systems mainly focuses on “intelligent” transportation and robotics within Inria and the GIPSA laboratory.
