    Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


    Results from a Danish mechatronics research program entitled IMCIA - Intelligent Control and Intelligent Actuators. The objective is development of intelligent actuators for intelligent motion control. A mechatronics test facility with a transputer controlled hydraulic robot suiteable for real-time experiments and evaluation of control laws and algorithms is presented. Concepts of intelligent motion control and intelligent hydraulic actuators are proposed. Promising experimental path-tracking results obtained from model-based adaptive control algorithms are presented and discussed.
