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/
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.©). The expected impacts are:
The consortium consists of five user partners and eight academic partners.
