Andrea Tosin has presented a talk on “Control strategies for road risk mitigation in kinetic traffic modelling”, at the Gipsa Lab.
He has presented a Boltzmann-type kinetic approach to the modelling of road traffic, which includes control strategies at the level of microscopic binary interactions aimed at the mitigation of speed-dependent road risk factors. Such a description is meant to mimic a system of driver-assist vehicles, which by responding locally to the actions of their drivers can impact on the large-scale traffic dynamics, including those related to the collective road risk and safety.

From Novembre 29 to December 1, Nicolas Martin and Paolo Frasca attended the 6th Conference on Complex Networks and their Applications. They presented a poster on their work on graph reduction during a well-attended interactive session. The conference program focused on network science with both theoretical and experimental works, with applications ranging from urban traffic to brain and to social networks.

Paolo Frasca, researcher and Stephane Mollier, PHD candidate have attended the 38th Summer school of automatic control which took place in Grenoble, in september 11-15, 2017. The main theme was the approximation of Large-scale dynamic models. The school presented an integrated approach to the latest developments in the classical methods of model reductions for linear systems.
Ioannis Paschalidis presented a talk at the Gipsa-lab on the 4th September 2017:
11h00 – 12h00 “Inverse Equilibrium Problems and Price-of-Anarchy Estimation in Transportation Networks” – Salle des Séminaires B208, DAUTO

Stephane Mollier has attended the course of ”Introduction to the control of Partial Differential Equations” given by the Professor Enrique Zuazua. The course happened from 10/04/2017 to 14/04/2017 and was organized by the European Embedded Control Institute and took place in Paris. The aim of the course was to give another view of what is control of PDE for students who do not have neccessary background in control.
Giacomo Casadei attended the “Journée commune GT SYNC et Observation”, Thursday 8th of June, in Paris.
The seminar was organised jointly by GDR MACS groups SynC and Observation, on the base of invited speaker, dealing with problem of observation and synchronisation of nonlinear systems. Giacomo presented his work on synchronisation of heterogeneous networks: in particular the talk dealt with the case of uncertain leader and the use of nonlinear regression tools.
The workshop, organized within the context of the ERC-AdG Scale-FreeBack project, aimed to investigate problems of modelling, model reduction, aggregation for large-scale dynamical systems and their application to traffic networks. Large-scale systems embed intrinsic issues in terms of computational complexity, which make their analysis and the definition of control architecture…

10h30 – 11h30 “Une introduction au contrôle quantique pour automaticiens familiers du monde classique” – Salle des Séminaires B208, DAUTO
14h00 – 15h “On the first experimental realization of a quantum state feedback” – Salle des Séminaires B208, DAUTO
