INRIA National and International Partners

Long term collaboration does exist with the University of Sevilla along several different topics including: coding and control co-design, Power control in NCS, energy-aware control in SoC, and control of DC/AC converters. Scientific collaborations inside the IST FeedNetBack project have been initialized with ETH Zurich and University of Sevilla about the integration of control and scheduling on distributed architectures, in particular focusing on the robustness and predictive control point of views. The ANR SafeNecs project provided support and collaboration along the three past years with teams from both the computing side (LORIA Trio team about control and (m,k)-firm scheduling) and from the fault tolerant control side (CRAN Nancy and GIPSA-LAB, about the integration of real-time control, diagnosis and flexible scheduling). Strong collaborations have been established with KTH (Stockholm), ETH (Zurich), University of Sevilla and Padova as core partners of the FeedNetBack European project.
