The research in the Department of Automatic Control and Systems Engineering is organised into three research groups, which reflect three strategic research themes.
Autonomous Systems and Robotics (Autonomy Theme)
Undertaking research in autonomous and robotic systems by investigating key research problems of sensing, control, decision making and system integration. Themes include: design of autonomous industrial robots and advanced software architectures for decision making.
Complex Systems and Signal Processing (Complexity Theme)
This research group is internationally renowned for its work on the identification and analysis of complex spatio-temporal systems, nonlinear signal processing, and the analysis and design of nonlinear systems in the frequency domain.
Intelligent Systems, Decision and Control (Intelligence Theme)
Making a global impact on advances in multiobjective evolutionary optimization algorithms, intelligent health monitoring and fault diagnosis, decision support systems for biomedicine, information processing and computational data modelling.
