MAC Team

Head: Denis Arzelier 
Secretary: Christèle MOUCLIER 


The activities of the "MAC" team are centered on the field of control and system theory, with a focus on feeback control structure: Closed-loop control versus open-loop optimal control strategies or motion planning. The main idea is to express the theoretical conditions which characterize the solutions to the various control problems, and also to provide efficient constructive algorithms associate to optimization problems that formalize the specifications and the desired functionalities of the control systems to be designed.
