Mechatronics and micro-systems

Control engineering methods are developed for mechatronic systems of the scale of millimeters and micrometers. Examples of applications are in adaptive optics where use is made of a deformable mirror with a large array of sensors and actuations, position control in a micro compact disk or hard disk, etc. Also on the macro-scale the DCSC collaborates with industrial partners like Océ, IHC-Systems, SKF, TNO, etc. to develop control strategies for innovative mechatronic designs, such as X-by-wire steering or braking.
