CONTROL SYSTEM DESIGN FOR UNMANNED GROUND VEHICLE

FEBRUARY-APRIL 2016| ZINE LAB | MNIT JAIPUR

OBJECTIVE

The objective was to design the control system for an unmanned ground vehicle. The control system was supposed to obtain the input sequences for a DC motor powered robot using its odometry.

METHODOLOGY

The sample UGV had differential drive mechanism for motion with the two rear wheels powered individually and the front wheel was the castor wheel. The rear wheels had series DC motors whose speed was regulated via armature-voltage controlled. By virtue of the back emf, the motors had a closed loop control.

RESEARCH ASPECTS


  The complete control system was designed on MATLAB-SIMULINK using the transfer functions obtained from the intrinsic characteristics of the motors
The Control Systems Library of SIMULINK was used for the various control blocks
  The system was simulated on a pre-defined map where it was supposed to traverse along the same without collisions till the target

RESULTS

  The simulation of the control system was successfully performed
   The system showed stable closed loop operation with easy to control feedback signals
   Awarded full score for the project work under the subject - Modern Control Theory & Designing Techniques
