Prof.dr. Rudy Negenborn is full professor in Multi-Machine Operations & Logistics at Delft University of Technology.
He is head of the Section Transport Engineering & Logistics, and leads the Researchlab Autonomous Shipping (RAS).
Negenborn's research interests include automatic control and coordination of transport technology, with a focus on smart shipping and smart logistics applications. With his team, he proposes multi-agent and model predictive control approaches that benefit from real-time information and communication potential.
He has over 300 peer reviewed publications and leads NWO, EU and industry funded research, such as the Horizon 2020 program NOVIMOVE.
As such, his research anticipates the massive introduction of sensing, computation, and communication technologies. Within the 4S Framework this is materialized into innovative solutions for smart equipment, transport hubs, ports and (synchromodal) networks.
Negenborn is editor of the books "Intelligent Infrastructures", "Distributed Model Predictive Control Made Easy", and "Transport of Water versus Transport over Water".
He chairs and acts as member of the organizing committee of several other international conferences (including IEEE control conferences and maritime systems & logistics conferences) and was guest editor of special journal issues on autonomous vessels and computational logistics.
With the MSc track Multi-Machine Engineering at TUDelft, Negenborn connects scientific insights with education to prepare the next generation of MSc engineers for the grand challenges in the maritime and transport domain.
