A Cyberphysical System (CPS) is a dynamic system interacting with a digital system (e.g. a microcontroller, a computer, etc.), to be properly controlled in closed loop to ensure good response and behavior. Control of CPS arises in many relevant engineering doamins including: process control, manufacturing machine control, robotics, mechatronics, automotive systems, aircraft control systems, critical infrastructure control (e.g. electric grid control, water resources control etc.), etc.
The goal of the course is to introduce the students to the problems related to the analysis, design and implementation of discrete time control systems for cyberphysical systems (CPS). Control of CPS arise in many different application domains including: process control, manufacturing machine control, robotics, automotive systems, aircraft control systems, critical infrastructure control (e.g. electric grid control, water resources control etc.) etc.
The aim of the course is to provide the basics of real time digital control of CPSs.
At the end of the course the students will be capable to design a digital closed loop control system using rational methodologies. Furthermore, they will be capable to provide specifications for the implementation of the digital control systems at hardware and software level.
Main prerequisites (fundamental)
Secondary prerequisites (not fundamental)
The course is based on lectures describing formal methodologies for the design of digital controller for CPSs, and providing examples based on real world applications, and additional laboratory computer sessions to get acquainted with software tools for control system design and simulation.
The course covers the following topics
GIORGIO CANNATA (President)
MARCO BAGLIETTO (President Substitute)
All class schedules are posted on the EasyAcademy portal.
The exam is a written assignment consisting in the project of a simple digital control system for a test case CPS and additional questions.
Optional oral discussion of complementary course topics, can be requested (by the candidates or in some cases by the instructor), if the evaluation of the written assignment is positive (grade >= 18/30).
