Work of thesis

Reference tracking control design for the longitudinal dynamic of an hypersonic vehicle.Through the linear quadratic regulation theory and the dynamic allocation theory, the optimal and robust designed controller exploits the over actuation redundancy of the system in order to guarantee specified permformances.


A reference generator, starting from the exosystem input and the controller output feedback, generates a reference for the state of the system and for the control input. The dynamic error between the generated references and the measured ones is used by the controller for stabilizing the closed loop dynamic and also for tracking a specific trajectory on velocity and altitude.


Furthermore an optimized dynamic allocator helps the controller for guaranteeing a depth performances accuracy, taking advantage from the input redundancy of the system.

Work of thesis

Trajectory tracking control of a mobile manipulator realized in the robot univeristy lab.


Starting from the study of the holonomy properties of the robot, a specific control software guarantees high performances accuracy on tracking reference trajectories for both the mobile robot and the manipulator. 

Through a multithreading programming, the implemented software menages the hard real time jobs using RTAI (RealTime Application Interface).
