The proseminar is part of the curriculum for students of Technical Cybernetics in the 4th semester (BSc). Each participant gives a lecture on a topic from the field of technical cybernetics. The course is offered by the Institute for Nonlinear Mechanics (INM), the Institute of Engineering and Computational Mechanics (ITM), the Institute for Systems Theory and Automatic Control (IST) and the Institute for System Dynamics (ISYS). Registration takes place at the beginning of the semester via C@mpus.


Within the framework of the proseminar offered by the ISYS, each participant gives a 15-minute presentation and prepares a handout (1 to max. 2 pages) for the presentation. During the preparation, the participants will be supervised by the scientific staff of the ISYS. The topics offered are taken from the basics of the field or the work areas of the supervisors. A list of the topics of the past semester is given on the right. The list for the current semester will be published at the same place as soon as the presentation topics have been finalized. Topics will be assigned on the first day of the seminar.


Topics may vary from year to year. Here is a current selection:

  • The general structure of a control loop
  • Stabilization of an inverted pendulum
  • Modeling and control of cranes
  • Kinematic and dynamic vehicle models for autonomous driving
  • Active vibration damping of a high-rise building
  • Rapid control prototyping
  • Control engineering in astronomical adaptive optics
  • Intraoperative navigation with use of the SLAM algorithm
