Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) is a multifaceted institution offering education and research in the technical sciences at an internationally recognized level. TU Delft comprises eight faculties, unique laboratories, research institutes and schools, and is a participant of the IGD-TP.
Research at the faculty of 3mE (Mechanical, Maritime and Materials Engineering) covers many fields, ranging from large-scale energy storage, medical instruments, control technology and robotics to smart materials, nanoscale structures, safe transport and autonomous boats. The research focuses on the design, manufacture, application and modification of products, materials, processes and mechanical devices and is a key component of many and extremely diverse fields of activity: energy, environment, food supplies, housing, water, transport, security and healthcare, to name but a few.
Delft Center for Systems and Control (DCSC) coordinates the education and research activities in systems and control at the Delft University of Technology. DCSC has been established in 2003 by merging the systems and control groups of Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Applied Physics. Our mission is to provide education and to perform research in systems and control, at an internationally recognized high level, from within a TUD-wide center that has a solid foundation in the faculty 3mE. In research we aim at contributing to fundamental aspects of dynamical systems and control as well as at advancing innovative and high-tech applications, in combination with relevant industrial and academic partners. In teaching we aim at creating a scientific climate where students can flourish to become independent and highly-skilled engineers and scientists.
The role of TU Delft in the SEACLEAR project relates to cooperative and distributed control, model-based control, reinforcement learning, and deep learning methods for classification and forecast. Furthermore, TU Delft will coordinate the SEACLEAR consortium and be the link between the EU and the partners.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 871295.
The SEACLEAR project spans four years, running from January 1st, 2020 to December 31st, 2023.
