We support machine builders by using tools to efficiently create better performing controllers for their products. Using our experience in combining theory and application insights, we employ model-based technologies. This allows us to leverage our knowledge about the system dynamics to create real-time, optimally performing controllers.

Flanders Make - Development of model-based controllers for increased system performance

What do we offer?

In the quest for lighter, faster, stronger or more energy-efficient products, large-scale optimisation problems arise in different product development stages: e.g. modelling, parameter estimation and optimal control.

Companies that manage to solve these problems efficiently gain an important strategic advantage. We help to accelerate the engineering of a working controller prototype, we give advice to achieve state-of-the-art computational efficiency and assist companies in creating a long-lasting, yet flexible control software solution. Our offer consists of:

  • modelling and model identification of drivetrain system dynamics;
  • controller type selection;
  • model-based controller design and tuning;
  • development of a learning or adaptive controller if so required by the application;
  • development of an optimal controller;
  • accelerated controller testing and validation.

Our unique software

We use various unique software toolboxes in this process:

  1. Linear control toolbox
  2. Learning control toolbox
  3. Context estimation and adaptive control toolbox
  4. Vibration/noise control toolbox
  5. Nonlinear optimisation and algorithmic differentiation toolbox
  6. Optimal drivetrain co-design toolbox
  7. Optimal cam design toolbox
  8. Dynamic programming toolbox for optimisation, including discrete variables
  9. Offline and online optimal path planning for AGV’s, drones…
  10. Controller validation toolbox
