In this paper we present a new approach to determine trajectories for changing the state of the double pendulum on a cart from one equilibrium to another and show the experimental realization on a test bench. The control of these transitions is accomplished by a two-degrees-of-freedom control scheme. For the design of the feedforward and feedback control of(More)
In a globalized world, technical systems are becoming ubiquitous , and are increasingly interacting directly with the physical world. The design space of such systems also, therefore, includes the basic laws of physics. Examples of such systems are worldwide production systems, public transport systems and the Internet as a commercial platform (including(More)
Machines are omnipresent. They produce, they transport. Machines facilitate work and assist. The increasing penetration of mechanical engineering by information technology enables considerable benefits. This circumstance is expressed by the term mechatronics, which means the close interaction of mechanics, electronics, control engineering and software(More)

In the area of product-based control of manufacturing processes, the potential to integrate intelligent products in process control has been recognized several times. However, the effect of greatly varying intelligent products on the control and hybrid system dynamics of the individual (sub-) processes have not been investigated. This article begins with a(More)
