Tutorial course for CAMS attendees is scheduled on Tuesday, 6 July, 9:30 - 16:30 h:

Diagnosis and Fault Tolerant Control for Marine Systems

Professor Mogens Blanke, Technical University of Denmark, Denmark.

Room: Aula 160/3, Engineering Faculty, Università Politecnica delle Marche


Fault-tolerant control aims at graceful degradation of automates systems in case of faults. It satisfies industrial demands for enhanced availability and safety, in contrast to traditional implementations where a supervisory system just make a sudden shut down, and hence cause loss of availability, when a fault is detected.

The lectures provide participants with an understanding of theory and methods that have proven themselves worthy in practical applications.

The lectures use examples from marine control and navigation to illustrate the theory.
