Context. Scale-FreeBack is an ERC Advanced Grant 2015 awarded to Carlos Canudas-de-Wit, Director of Research at the National Center for Scientific Research, (CNRS), during Sept. 2016-2021. The ERC is hosted by the CNRS. The project will be conducted within the NeCS group (which is a joint CNRS (GIPSA-lab)-INRIA team). Scale-FreeBack is a project with ambitious and innovative theoretical goals, which were adopted in view of the new opportunities presented by the latest large-scale sensing technologies. The overall aim is to develop holistic scale-free control methods of controlling complex network systems in the widest sense, and to set the foundations for a new control theory dealing with complex physical networks with an arbitrary size. Scale-FreeBack envisions devising a complete, coherent design approach ensuring the scalability of the whole chain (modelling, observation, and control). It is also expected to find specific breakthrough solutions to the problems involved in managing and monitoring large-scale road traffic networks. Field tests and other realistic simulations to validate the theory will be performed using the equipment available at the Grenoble Traffic Lab center, and a microscopic traffic simulator replicating the full complexity of the Grenoble urban network. The proposed work will be undertaken in the context of this project.
