Control engineering is the basis for controlling modern autonomous systems – from heating to robots: Control rules decide how a system will follow an instruction, reacts to unforeseen influences and ensures that its function is performed reliably. In safety-critical applications, a mathematical proof of the reliability of the control system is indispensable. This can be carried out using as exact a model as possible. That approach meets its limits, however, in complex systems that are not easily modeled.
