Abstract This paper presents and experimentally validates an embedded linear model predictive control (MPC) approach that is particularly useful for implementation on resource-constrained embedded hardware. The MPC scheme is based on a real-time implementation of the proximal gradient method (PGM) and generates input signals with guaranteed constraint satisfaction. Given standard linear MPC assumptions, asymptotic stability of the resulting closed loop is proven. Applied to linear systems with s...

Factories of the future must be agile to adapt to rapidly changing customer needs, market volatility and shortened product life cycles. This requires flexibility in hardware and software at distinct levels of the factory and manufacturing process: multipurpose machines with fast change-overs, easy to use reconfigurable software and distributed decision-making are key. This paper leverages the new Industry 4.0 design principles to cope with these new manufacturing requirements: (i) distributed au...

This demonstration presents Flexonomy, a flexible autonomous system for distributed coordination, transportation and localisation in a lab-scale factory floor. It illustrates the use of multi-agent systems in manufacturing and leverages new Industry 4.0 design principles to cope with manufacturing requirements in factories of the future: rapidly changing customer needs, market volatility and shortened product life cycles. Three main contributions are identified: (i) distributed auction-based coo...

Abstract This paper presents the Linear Control Toolbox, a freely available Matlab-based software package primarily focused on optimal feedback controller design for LTI and LPV systems. Its main goal is to make more involved controller design methodologies accessible to the broader public by providing tailored synthesis and analysis tools. The paper gives an overview of the different modules within the toolbox, the underlying data structures and the supported functionalities and algorithms. Mor...

This paper presents LCToolbox, an open-source matlab software package facilitating robust linear feedback controller design. Its key feature is the automation of time-consuming pre- and postprocessing steps that are inextricable from modern control design techniques. In particular, the toolbox focuses on H ∞ loop shaping for linear time-invariant (LTI) and linear parameter-varying (LPV) systems. Since these methods require an accurate model to realize their full potential, the toolbox also suppo...

Abstract This paper presents mobile platforms that were recently designed in support of an introductory control course. Through dedicated assignments, the students are guided to implement and validate all parts of the course on a setup, ranging from basic time-domain system identification, over root locus analysis and loop shaping PID design, to state feedback, state estimation and Kalman filtering. The platforms are flexible, allowing for numerous extensions and variations; cheap, allowing for ...

This paper presents a novel LTI control toolbox, aiming at transparent optimal feedback controller design. It provides a compact and intuitive syntax to model the control configuration and to formulate performance specifications based on an criterion. Its core contains state-of-the-art solvers which are able to handle unstable weights. Moreover, improper weighting functions can be handled and state measurements are exploited to reduce the controller order. On account of these aspects, the synthe...
