A compact and agile jumping robot designed for indoor environments. The combination of wheels and legs allows it to move quickly on flat terrain and to overcome obstacles by jumping. Its small form factor renders it fit for tight indoor spaces and shows potential for high-agility indoor mobility tasks.
At EPFL – Laboratoire d’Automatique, a novel data-driven control design method is used for designing a primary-secondary controller for an electrical power grid. In this method, the measurement data of the system is used directly for controller design with no need for a parametric model of the system, which provides a guarantee for stability and performance. In order to validate the effectiveness of this method, a power system including switching inverters is simulated using Simulink®. Measurement data of the simulated system is then used to design a data-driven controller in MATLAB® using MOSEK. The performance of the designed controller is tested using Simulink and RT-LAB® on an Opal-RT real-time simulator.
Real-time target machines from Speedgoat are expressly designed to work with Simulink Real-Time™, to connect with your physical hardware under test, to run real-time applications created from Simulink using automatic C and HDL code generation, to verify and validate your designs, and to continuously try new ideas.
