Home Research Publications Events About LINK-SIC

Vinnova Industry Excellence Center that started 2008 with a ten year horizon. The annual budget is 10.6 MSEK and the funding comes from Vinnova, Linköping University, and the participating companies. The Center Director is Svante Gunnarsson.


LINK-SIC is a 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. The research and competence/product enhancement will focus on questions of sensor systems and sensor fusion, supervision and diagnostics, as well as autonomy and model-based design of control systems.
