41014 Sensors and Control for Mechatronic Systems

6cp
Requisite(s): 48623 Mechatronics 2 AND 48660 Dynamics and Control
Recommended studies:

Basic knowledge of classical control techniques.


Fields of practice: Mechanical and Mechatronic Engineering major

Description

The objectives of this subject are to develop the student's theoretical and practical understanding on active and passive sensing and feedback control techniques, ability to select and evaluate sensors, process the sensor data, and apply computer-based tools for practical control system design using the sensory information. Topics include visual imaging and image processing, infrared imaging, time of flight (TOF) measurements, detection and tracking, state-space modelling of linear systems, stability, controllability and observabililty, linear quadratic control, observer design, H-infinity control, and model predictive control. Case studies of engineering applications are also covered.

Typical availability

Autumn session, City campus
Spring session, City campus
