 +====== C4C ======
  
 +C4C (Coordination for Control) is a new FP7 European project on networked embedded and control systems - control of large-scale complex distributed systems. It is expected to start 1 May 2008, with a duration of three years.
 +
 +Main web site: [[http://​www.c4c-project.eu/​]]
 +
 +===== Project summary =====
 +
 +Control for coordination of distributed systems is motivated by the case studies of control
 +for underwater vehicles, for aerial vehicles, for a road control and communication network, ​
 +for automated guided vehicles, and for complex machines. ​
 +
 +The research thrust is in control design and control synthesis. In particular,
 +in control synthesis of a global coordinator of a distributed system, in communication for control, in informatics for control, and in tools for control design. Control design for the case studies
 +based on the research thrust will form the main effort of the project and will be disseminated to the user partners. ​
 +
 +The contribution to the European Commission Work Program are in control of large-scale complex distributed systems (ICT-2007.3.7.(c)). ​
 +The expected impacts are:
 +  - enabling low cost monitoring for the environment and for natural resources by underwater and aerial vehicles;
 +  - new services and applications for new markets, in particular for automated guided vehicles at container terminals, and for control and communication networks on motorway networks;
 +  - improved performance of distributed systems.
 +
 +The consortium consists of five user partners and eight academic partners.
