The ever-increasing industry desire for improved performance makes linear controller design run into its fundamental limitations. A nonlinear controller, such as Reset Control (RC), is needed to overcome these. RC is promising since, unlike other nonlinear methods, it easily integrates into the PID design framework preferred by industry. Thus...

The Ampelmann system occasionally starts vibrating unexpectedly, especially while the system is placed on a pedestal. These vibrations are believed to be caused by the eigenfrequencies of the system and/or amplification caused by the motion control algorithm. In this research an investigation in this phenomenon was done. This investigation was...

The development of the high-tech industry has pushed the requirements of motion applications to extremes regarding precision, speed and robustness. A clear example is given by the wafer and reticle stages that require rigorous demands like robust nanometer precision and high-speed motion profiles to ensure product quality and production...

In modern society cars are one of the most important means of transportation. Unfortunately, many people die in car accidents around the world. Research shows that the number of fatal casualties in car accidents has been increasing for the past decade and that the largest cause of these accidents is the human driver. For this reason, research on...

Mechatronic embedded control systems are becoming increasingly sophisticated and computationally demanding. These systems typically consists of multiple controllers, which coordinate the actuators and apply feedback based on data collected by sensors. Often the underlying control strategy is entirely described in a software application, which...

Motion planning for Autonomous Ground Vehicles (AGVs) in dynamic environments is an extensively studied and complex problem. State of the art methods provide approximate solutions that make conservative assumptions to provide safety and feasibility. We aim to outperform current methods by following a trajectory optimization-based approach,...

The high-tech industry is pushing the motion system technology towards faster, more precise and more robust system. One of the keys to this growing demand is the advancement of motion control. To this day, Proportional-Integral-Derivative (PID) has been the workhorse for the industry system control. This is because PID is simple to design and...

Yachts are built to provide guests with a unique experience. In order to provide this experience, yachts are often anchored at special locations. Captains prefer to use a single bow anchor when they moor the vessel. Problems are reported with respect to the availability while yachts are at anchor. These are caused by environmental forces....

To compensate the heaving motion of a payload during deep water offshore installations, hanging from an on-board crane on a monohull vessel, a new concept is being investigated. By actively rolling the vessel using ballasting systems, the coupled heave motion of the crane tip can be reduced significantly. This is investigated by building a...

The Project Experiencing gorillas in the cloud is a graduation project that aims ‘to create a product for the Apenheul that enhances the user experience of a visit to the park using sensor data’. In Apenheul a network of sensors has been placed around the gorilla island, constantly gathering data about the gorillas. Gorillas In the Cloud was...

During the course of this thesis, RTM-USB (Real Time Motion on Universal Serial Bus) has grown from a single board motor controller to a motion control platform. The original RTM-USB board, containing a CPU and two motor drivers, has been extended (hardware wise) with a network/bus interface which makes it easy to expand the hardware...
