Paper Abstract

In this paper, the advantages of sensing rich approaches to the design of mechatronic systems are explored. Such advantages include enhanced system performance, flexible operation of the system and reduced operational costs. Some advantages of the sensing rich design will be elaborated for the power transmission mechanism or drive train under servo control. The drive train is a fundamental element of any motion control system. The sensing rich design is based on measurements of positions and accelerations at multiple points of a drive train. These measurements improve the performance of drive train servo systems in terms of speed, positioning accuracy and vibration suppression. For example, the Kinematic Kalman filter (KKF) may be used in sensing rich designs. KKF accomplishes robust estimation of the velocity in the presence of parameter uncertainties and disturbances based on the accelerometer and the encoder.
