  • Abstract: The main objective of the FeedNetBack project is to generate a rigorous co-design framework that integrates architectural constraints and performance trade-offs from control, communication, computation, complexity and energy management. The goal is to master complexity, temporal and spatial uncertainties such as delays and bandwidth in communications and node availability. This approach enabled the development of more efficient, robust and affordable networked control systems that scale and adapt with changing application demands. The project extend the current scientific state-of-the-art in networked control and develop a set of software tools to support the co-design framework.

  • Title: Highly Complex and Networked Control Systems


  • Defi: Engineering of Networked Monitoring and Control Systems

  • Instrument: Network of Excellence (NoE)

  • Duration: September 2010 - August 2014

  • Coordinator: CNRS (France)

  • Others partners: Inria (France), ETH Zurich (Switzerland), TU Berlin (Germany), TU Delft (Netherlands) and many others
