Research at the Laboratory of Prof. Dr.-Ing. Stefan Streif is concerned with control, diagnosis, analysis and identification, verification, and classification of complex systems. Methods of control theory, modeling, applied mathematics, optimization, and computer science are synergistically combined, applied and further developed. Application areas are diverse and include automation, mechatronics, agricultural sciences, energy systems and systems biology. In addition to a solid method-oriented and theoretically well-founded research, the application relevance is attributed great importance. Thus, the research has a strong interdisciplinary focus. For this reason, the Lab cooperates closely with industrial and academic partners.
