Founded in 1980, the Research Center for Automatic Control (CRAN) is a joint research unit between the University of Lorraine and the French National Scientific Research Center (CNRS). The unit is also supported by the Lorraine Institute of Oncology (ICL - Alexis Vautrin) and hosts hospital practitioners from the University Hospital Center (CHU).
The main research activity domains of the CRAN are dynamical control and observation of complex systems, system identification and signal processing, manufacturing plant control, networked control systems, fault detection and fault tolerant control, safety and reliability, health engineering for oncology and neurology. These activities are developed in three research departments.
