From the series: How a Differential Equation Becomes a Robot
Carlos Osorio, MathWorks
In Part 3 of this five-part webinar series we focus on how to design controllers for electro-mechanical systems. We show how to linearize your plant and automatically tune PID gains, as well as how to optimize multiple controller gains and the overall system performance directly on the non-linear simulation model.
About the presenter: Carlos Osorio received a B.S. from the Pontificia Universidad Catolica del Peru and an M.S. from the University of California at Berkeley, both in Mechanical Engineering. He specializes in Automatic Control Systems and Vehicle Dynamics. Before joining The MathWorks in October of 2007, he worked in the automotive industry in the Advanced Chassis Technology Department at Visteon Corporation, where he was involved in the development and implementation of prototype electronic active and semi-active suspensions, steer-by-wire and brake-by-wire systems for passenger vehicles.
