Horst Schulte received the diploma degree in Electrical Engineering from TU Berlin and
the Ph.D. degree in Control Engineering from University Kassel (Germany). He joined the
Bosch Group in 2005 where he worked in R&D projects in the field of modeling, optimization
and advanced control of actuators, power systems and drive trains. Since November 2009,
he has been a full Professor at the University of Applied Sciences HTW Berlin. His
research interests include nonlinear controller and observer design with Takagi-Sugeno (TS),
LPV and sliding-mode techniques, robust control system design, active fault-tolerant
control (FTC) system design with industrial applications. Prof. Schulte is one of
European Advanced Control and Diagnosis (EACD) steering committee members and a
member of IFAC TC 6.4 Fault Detection, Supervision & Safety of Technical Processes
and 7.1 Automotive Control.
