Section: New Software and Platforms


The driving idea is to interconnect a group of actors (researchers, engineers, etc.) around a control problem and grant them remote access to existing experimental facilities, thus allowing them to verify their theoretical results online, and finally share them with the project members.

The platform architecture relies on three key principles:

  • Problem centric: The control problem to be solved is the core project, whereas the software resources, tools and online experiments are web services available to support experimental verification of the solutions.

  • Separation of concerns: setup and maintenance of experiment facilities, installation of software tools, problem formulation and theoretical analysis, etc.

  • Resource sharing: software packages, experimental facilities, open problems.
