      The goal Introduce students to principles of distributed sensing and control, enabling technologies and available techniques for design and implementation of such systems.
      The outcome Students are able to: define appropriate design and implementation framework for distributed system application, define and implement sensing and/or control functionalities on either conceptual or concrete level.
      Contents of lectures Introduction. Integration of control, communications and computing. Architectures and technology support. Network-enabled and resource-constrained systems. Stability and optimization. Distributed algorithms and control: predictive, quadratic-optimal, consensus, estimation and filtering. Applications: industry, smart grid, home automation, precision agriculture and complex cyber-physical systems.
