Professor Ming Cao of the Engineering and Technology Institute Groningen (ENTEG ) has been awarded an ERC Consolidator Grant. The European Research Council (ERC) awards these personal grants, worth € 2 million, to outstanding scientists thus stimulating ground-breaking research in Europe.
is professor of Networks and Robotics. Cao is trained as an electrotechnical engineer and is an expert in building mathematical models for complex systems. He conducts ground-breaking research in the field of control systems that allow groups of autonomous robots to work together. Cao grew up in China and studied in the United States.
In order to have autonomous cars and robots function effectively and safely, they must be able to take each other’s actions into account. Cao works on this development with colleagues from sociology, mathematics and biology. The resulting algorithms he develops for robots are partly inspired by the movements of animals, particularly fish and birds, who also act in formation.
