Real-time control using a polynomial representation

Fuzzy-polynomial approaches have gained considerable interest in the last years for control of nonlinear systems. The stability and design conditions for such models are derived in the form of sum-of-squares, which can be solved using available tools.

This project aims at the testing and validation of the SOS approach on an available laboratory setup. Options include the Quanser rotational inverted pendulum, controlling an Inteco3D crane to move the load along a designated trajectory, a Cyton Gamma robot arm, etc.

We are looking for a motivated student, able to invest himself fully into this project. Familiarity with Matlab and C programming is a must, as is a good command of the English language to have access to the literature. Experience with real-time applications is a plus.
