This article addresses the problems of online estimations of kinematic and dynamic states of a mechanism from a sequence of noisy measurements. In particular, we focus on a planar four-bar linkage equipped with inertial measurement units (IMUs). Firstly, we describe how the position, velocity, and acceleration of all parts of the mechanism can be derived(More)
The increasing competitiveness of sectors such as automotive, robotics or spatial aircraft manufacturing calls for a reduction of their lifecycle-design stages. In this context, being able to perform dynamic analyses of complex Multibody Systems (MBS) before manufacturing is becoming more and more valuable. This discipline is useful for studying the dynamic(More)
This paper describes the development of an electric car prototype, aimed at autonomous, energy-efficient driving. Starting with an urban electric car, we describe the mechanical and mechatronics add-ons required to automate its driving. In addition, a variety of exteroceptive and proprioceptive sensors have been installed in order to obtain accurate(More)
Most experimental fields of science and engineering require the use of data acquisition systems (DAQ), devices in charge of sampling and converting electrical signals into digital data and, typically, performing all of the required signal preconditioning. Since commercial DAQ systems are normally focused on specific types of sensors and actuators, systems(More)
