aims of the project

The focus of the project is interconnected systems, where the interconnections can be either due to information exchange or to physical interactions. The idea is to consider the physical interconnection as external disturbances which should be compensated by means of set-based predictive control schemes. Through information exchange we expect to reduce the overall conservatism.
