Virtual and Remote Control Lab

Abstract

The goal of this project is to build a a virtual and remote control laboratory that would contain a number of laboratory servo systems which would be based on the following state-of-the-art industrial motion control components: Servo controllers Ultimodule TMAC01, brushless dc motors Parker SMB60, motor drives Parker SLVD. All laboratory setups must be accessible via Internet and users should be able to use and test their own control algorithms as well as those that are existing in the controller library. TMAC01 servo controllers are FPGA-based and allow integration of new types of control algorithms.
