What is ISCAR?

The ISCAR (Systems Engineering, Control, Automation and Robotics) Research Group belongs to the Department of Computer Architecture and Automatic Control (DACYA) at the Complutense University of Madrid (UCM), which is installed at the core of three schools: Computer Engineering, Physics and Electronics.

The ISCAR group conducts research in control, computer vision, optimization, modelling and simulation. At present, its research is mainlyf ocused on UxV (Unmaned Air Vehicles, Unmaned Sea Vehicles) and coordination strategies. Current projects include: cooperation of Unmanned Marine and Aerial Vehicles for search, surveillance and rescue; vision based autonomous systems, and embedded control systems. For more information, visit the ISCAR web page.

The group is also responsible of the Sytems Engineering and Automatica subjects at the UCM. These subjects cover the topics of Linear Systems, Control Systems, Digital Control, Signal Processing, Robotics, Intelligent Control, and others. Therefore, the professors of ISCAR are continuosly developing new experiments and teaching tools on behalf of their students.

What is this web site?

This website has been created to share our teaching tools and experiments with the Control Education community. In it, we will make available their hardware descriptions (including circuits and PCBs), their software (including code and executables) and their documentation (including articles and manuals).

To facilitate the navigation of this web page, as well as adding all these elements under their corresponding tabs, we will show the most recent tools and improvements in the News section. Therefore, if you are interested in our work, don't hesitate to visit it to see our lastest developments.
