OPTIMAL CONTROL & OBSERVATION

Today’s technologies allow to access to more and more powerful computation systems. 
This way it is now possible to economically implement controllers and observers able to perform complex sensor-fusion techniques and to calculate predictions and corrections in real-time in order to boost the efficience of automation and measurement systems.


Microtecna has a vast experience in these mathematical approaches and can apply them in various application fields, including:

  • Navigation based on Extended Kalman Filtering

  • Model Predictive Control (MPC)

  • Reinforcement Learning (RL)

  • System Identification

A vast platform design and produced in order to manage complex AGV-based logistics processes.

Microtecna Logistic Platform (MLP)

Keywords: LOGISTICS, AGV, TRACEABILITY, PROCESS CONTROL, TRAFFIC CONTROL

Hybrid frameworks capable to manage scientific-tailored algorithms to sort object classes and dispatch them in apposite containers at  very high frequencies.

These solution are composed of a Windows based RTOS where sensors’ data are acquired at very high speed and RTC operations are performed. These system communicate (in hard-real-time) with hi-performance PLCs that manage the sorting operations through motion control technologies and hi-speed I/Os.

The PLCs are also provided with integrated and certified safety solutions.

Optimal Drill Control Application

Keywords: DRILLING, PROCESS OPTIMIZATION

A complete hardware/software solution tailored to control and manage safety of industrial cranes.
Given Microtecna’s expertise in optimal control & observation, this solution integrates custom-built algorithms to minimize load oscillations during crane’s movements.

Based on multiple technological layers (PLC/SAFE-PLC), this system manages all automation devices to guarantee the maximum performances and safety. The operators interact with the system using Wifi Joysticks and web-based GUIs. Different optical sensors and lidars recognize operators presence and automatically manages safety and manual operations (using SLS and STL technologies). The solution can be integrated with external MES to guarantee fully traceability of the production process and perform condition monitoring on the machine.
