Welcome to LINK-SIC

LINK-SIC - Linköping Center for Sensor Informatics and Control - is a Vinnova Industry Excellence Center for industry-academia cooperation in the general area of control systems and signal processing. The goal is to have long-term coalitions for sustained cooperation in areas vital for Swedish system-building industry. In particular this aims for developing future control and sensor informatics strategies for industrial robots, aerial vehicles, marine vessels, and automotive applications.

LINK-SIC has five industrial partners divided into three nodes:

Aerial Vehicles and Marine Vessels

Automotive Systems

Important research areas are design of sensor systems, supervision and diagnosis, autonomous capabilities, and advanced control based on new complex models. For the industrial partners this is about meeting increasing demands on safety, cost
efficiency, and performance.

The core research competence is based on the research area Control Systems at Linköping University. This area consists of the three research groups:
