The history of lidar-assisted control

Research and testing of lidar-assisted control started at University of Stuttgart in 2008 and since then experience on advanced control technologies involving processed lidar measurements has been built up. David Schlipf, head of the Lidar Technology at sowento, has played an important role in the evolution and development of lidar in wind energy applications. Through his research and leading
