The CLOVER project

CLOVER is a project for Robust Control, State Estimation and Disturbance Compensation for Highly Dynamic Environmental Mechatronic Systems. The goal is to offer a novel methodology in an environmental mechatronic control system design relying on multidisciplinary knowledge. It is implemented in such a way, that collaborative research and training between universities and industrial organizations from Germany, Austria, Belgium, Norway, UK, Mexico, and Japan is reached. The covered topics contain: Mechatronic chassis systems of electric vehicles, Mechatronic-based grid interconnection circuitry, Offshore mechatronics.
