Intelligent Control and Diagnosis working group leads to new developments and applications in the field of automatic control and fault diagnosis. The aim of the ICD working group,recently renowned European Advanced Intelligent Control and Diagnosis working group with a Steering Committee, is to explore research opportunities in the direction of Fault Diagnosis and Fault-tolerant Control for technical systems. EACD working group has been founded in 1998 and their research activities include, but are not limited to:
robust control, adaptive control, fault-tolerant control, control reconfiguration, model-based diagnosis of linear, nonlinear and hybrid systems, data-driven diagnosis methods, process supervision, diagnosis and control of discrete-event systems, maintenance and repair strategies, statistical methods for fault diagnosis, reliability and safety, signal and image processing, system identification, vision and robotics, condition monitoring, maintenance engineering, prognosis and health management, interval methods, numerical methods, neural and fuzzy methods, artificial intelligence methods for control and diagnosis.
The main fields of applications are embedded systems, distributed systems, industrial processes, intelligent sensors and actuators, transportation systems, renewable energy systems, autonomous systems. Further, challenging issues in the areas of muti-agent sytems, cyber-physical production systems, industrial internet of things, systems and control for sustainability and structural methods for complex systems are considered.

Within this working group, the members co-operate in different ways, one important one are joint European projects. The aim for the future is to initiate more of such projects, especially in co-operation with industry and to tackle with advanced methods  in order to improve the human safety and dependability of the system.
