Background and activities

My name is Robin T. Bye and I am an associate professor in automation engineering and member of the Software and Intelligent Control Engineering Laboratory (SoftICE Lab) at NTNU in Ålesund. Apart from teaching automation and computer engineering classes at both the bachelor and master on artificial intelligence, cybernetics, microcontrollers, and intelligent systems, I also supervise PhD, master, and bachelor students on their thesis topics. My main research interests belong to areas such as intelligent control engineering, virtual prototyping, computational modelling and simulation of human movements, research in teaching and education, as well as dynamic resource allocation and operations research.

Please visit my website at for more information about my professional activities, including my CV, research projects, and publications (the list below is autogenerated and far from being exhaustive).
