"We need to develop logic engines that can autonomously interact with our applications and to improve their control actions to achieve the desired behavior, by fusing data-driven learning and model-based control engineering."

Research profile

Roland Tóth is Full Professor in the Control Systems Group in the Department of Electrical Engineering at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). His research interest is in identification and control of physical/chemical systems based on the concept of Linear Parameter-Varying (LPV) models. These models can be imagined as an intermediate step between the well understood framework of Linear Time-Invariant (LTI) systems and the vast universe of nonlinear and time-varying phenomena we experience in practice. One of his main objectives is to bring LPV systems to practical use, through research projects varying from theoretical investigations of hardcore issues of the LPV system theory to practical identification and control of industrial applications.  

In addition, Tóth works on the fusion of system identification, control and machine learning methods to develop automated data-driven modeling and controller design approaches for linear/nonlinear systems. The methods are designed to automatically construct dynamical models that capture user-specified aspects of system behavior. In terms of control, policies/algorithms are automatically synthesized by these methods to realize a desired behavior of a system by manipulating its actuators. 

Tóth is a Senior Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Control Systems Technology. 

Academic background

Roland Tóth obtained his BSc in Electrical Engineering and MSc degree in Information Technology cum laude from the University of Pannonia (Hungary) in 2004. In 2008, he completed his PhD in Control Engineering at the Delft University of Technology (TU Delft), also cum laude. From 2008 to 2010, Tóth worked as a postdoctoral researcher at TU Delft while also working on a research project for Philips Apptech. In 2010, he joined the University of California (USA) as a postdoc, before returning to the Netherlands in 2011 to become Assistant Professor at TU Delft. Tóth joined Eindhoven University of Technology as Assistant Professor in 2012 and was promoted to Associate Professor in 2018 and Full Professor in 2024.
