กลุ่มวิจัยการควบคุมขั้นสูงและการหาค่าเหมาะที่สุด
(Advanced Control and Optimization : ACO)

1. Vision statement

There are control systems everywhere.  They are indispensable, though not largely visible to the general public.  Most products in our daily life are manufactured using several automatically controlled systems.  Our home appliances and vehicles are full of control systems.  Even our human bodies are full of innumerable control mechanisms.  The challenging problems for control researchers nowadays concern health sciences, environmental problems, and helping the industries to make more products with less energy.

The objectives of ACO are to conduct basic researches in system modeling, system analysis, and control system synthesis and to develop optimization tools which can efficiently determine numerical solutions for control systems problems.  We apply the knowledge obtained to practical systems, such as industrial processes and mobile robots and disseminate the know-how to support control systems industries in the ASEAN region so that they are more reliable on self-developed technology.
