Welcome to the website of the Advanced Controls Research Laboratory (ACRL) in the Mechanical Science and Engineering Department at the University of Illinois. In the ACRL, we focus on open problems in mathematical control theory and we work with collaborators from industry and government laboratories on the transition of our solutions, to the extent possible, to real-world engineering problems.

Our work often involves interdisciplinary collaborations with other departments at University of Illinois and other universities in the US and Europe. We also intensively work with various industries and government agencies to facilitate the quick transition of our basic research results to application owners.
