Background and activities
Mogens Blanke (1947) is Adjunct Professor at the Department of Engineering Cybernetics. He is a member of the research group for Motion Control Systems. Blanke has a MScEE in Automatic Control and a PhD from the Servolaboratory, Technical University of Denmark.
Genereal area of research is in automation of systems. Specific theoretic interests comprise autonomous fault-tolerance, fault-diagnosis, systems architecture design to obtain desired safety properties, system modelling, identification and control. Application experience has been in the areas of spacecraft and marine systems and in autonomous robotics.
