The Specific Research Center (CER) “Monitoring, Safety and Automatic Control” (CS2AC-UPC) is a multidisciplinary group of professors from the Technical University of Catalonia (UPC) -Barcelona Tech- and researchers of the Higher Council for Scientific Research (CSIC) dedicated to the wider world of automatic control and monitoring systems.
The primary goal of CER CS2AC-UPC is to contribute to the competitiveness of our companies and scientific and technical knowledge by developing advanced control systems and design of optimal systems, fault-tolerant control of complex systems. In this domain, CER CS2AC-UPC researchers describe dynamical systems using mathematical models, dynamically analyze their behavior in time and frequency domain, optimally located sensors, design advanced control systems (predictive controllers, intelligent controllers, ..) and develop monitoring systems that optimize performance criteria under various restrictions with the capability of predicting, detecting and diagnosing faults and with ability to create fault-tolerant mechanisms in real time of complex systems.
These themes are used by members of the CER to address different scientific and technological challenges:
- Projects of national and international research and collaboration agreements for the development of R+D+i with national and international companies.
- A important training activity at undergraduate and graduate levels integrated with the research conducted at the CER. This training activity includes participation in a doctoral program with quality mention, in 2 official masters and 6 degrees.
- Research laboratories and offices spaces in the building GAIA Terrassa Campus of the UPC necessary to conduct innovative research in advanced control systems.
The group has several sources of funding, both in competitive at European level, Spanish and Catalan public calls, and through agreements with companies, enterprises and public projects with technology transfer and innovation.
