Electrical Engineering

Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur

Welcome to the Controls and Automation group in the Department of Electrical Engineering, IIT Kanpur. The stream offers M.Tech. and PhD programs.

On the control systems front, the research interests of the group include applications of control theories such as robust control, linear and non linear control, intelligent techniques (fuzzy logic and neural networks), adaptive control, sliding mode control, etc, to modern areas such as robotics, mobile robots, consensus and cooperation among multiple agents, quadrotors, and all-wheel independent drive electric vehicles.

On the instrumentation front, the research interests of the group include smart and intelligent sensors, virtual instrumentation, intelligent systems and modeling, soft-computing, data mining, machine learning, brain-computer interface, computer vision, intelligent informatics, intelligent condition-based monitoring, computational intelligence, business intelligence, and related applications in various domains.

The faculty members have multiple projects funded by government and private agencies, and are working on them with active support from students.
