Its main objective is to carry out research in modeling, identification and control of processes and dynamic systems, both locally and remotely, including sensors, actuators and communication systems for control and supervision.

The laboratory is implemented for teaching purposes related to pre- and (post)graduate courses. It also allows cates for research forward in advanced automatic control.

  • System of interconnected (conical and parallelepiped) pools that allows the implementation of experiments of identification of non-linear systems, and diffuse and neuronal control.
  • Motor-generator system based on direct current (DC) machines, which allows the implementation of classic linear control experiments.
  • Twin-rotor system that enables the emulation of helicopter dynamics, facilitating the development of adaptive control and anomaly detection experiments.
  • PLC (programmable logic controller) System .
  • “Delta-V” distributed control system.
