Penn State industrial engineering graduate students doing work in the DISCRETE Lab.
 

Distributed Intelligent Systems and Controls: Research, Education, and Technology Lab

Directed by Vittal Prabhu, professor of industrial engineering, the Distributed Intelligent Systems and Controls: Research, Education, and Technology (DISCRETE) Lab focuses on exploring fundamental issues in distributed systems at the interface of manufacturing, controls, and information systems.

Located in 236 Leonhard Building, the research completed in DISCRETE primarily focuses on developing new algorithms and in understanding how best to engineer solutions based on such algorithms. 

Researchers in the lab also use RoboDK for 3D printing with robots.
