Delft University of Technology.
Prof.dr. Rudy Negenborn (TU Delft) is full professor in Multi-Machine Operations & Logistics.
He is head of the Section Transport Engineering & Logistics of Department Maritime & Transport Technology, and of the Researchlab Autonomous Shipping.
Negenborn's research interests include automatic control and coordination of transport technology (including autonomous vessels) in general, whereby he proposes multi-agent system and model predictive control approaches that benefit from real-time information availability and the potential of communication. 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.
He has over 200 peer reviewed academic publications. He leads NWO, EU and industry funded research, and is on the editorial board of the series on "Intelligent Systems, Control and Automation: Science and Engineering". He was moreover general chair of the 6th International Conference on Computational Logistics, has acted 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. In addition, he is editor of the books "Intelligent Infrastructures", "Distributed Model Predictive Control Made Easy", and "Transport of Water versus Transport over Water".
