About department

The department since long has been orienting on research of complex systems with emphasis on discrete and event systems. Great results were achieved in the area of formalization of problems, modelling and simulation of the systems using formalisms of Petri Nets and state-charts. Distinguished results were achieved in the domain of agents and multi-agents technology. The research is oriented on coordination and cooperation of mobile agents, application of artificial intelligence methods, distributed intelligence and distributed control. The goal is to research and evolve methods of collective intelligence and apply the results in the area of swarm robotics, social systems, economical and political systems, etc.

Application of accomplished results are in different areas – robotic systems, manufacturing systems of continuous, discrete and hybrid character, crisis situation, transport systems.
