Motion Control is a rapidly evolving topic, with a wide range of applications, especially in robotics. Speed and position control of a mechanical system has always been one of the main problems in automatic control, as the demand increases for advanced levels of accuracy and dynamics. The study of motion control aims to combine theoretical approaches with the realization of mechanical systems characterized by high levels of performance. The IFAC workshop focused on the evolution of: mechanical systems modelling; control strategies; intelligent instrumentation; dedicated microprocessor devices, and new fields of application.


For engineers and researchers with an interest in motion control.
