This approach is able to utilize a good initial condition to reduce the computation time in comparison to standard methods for solving the Riccati equation.
Digital Anti-Windup PI Controllers for Variable-Speed Motor Drives Using FPGA and Stochastic Theory
The windup phenomenon occurs when the output of a proportional-integral (PI) controller is saturated, which results in performance degradation or even instability. In this letter, three new…

Frequency response method for terrain classification in autonomous ground vehicles
This paper focuses on terrain classification using vibration measurements, performed using a probabilistic neural network, which can be implemented online at relatively high computational speeds and is applied experimentally to both an ATRV-Jr and an eXperimental Unmanned Vehicle at multiple speeds.
