The control of motion systems, such as pick and place machines and robotic systems, is a challenging and active field of research. Key characteristics are that modelling of the plant is a relative mature engineering field, and
feedback tuning is normally done using loop shaping techniques. However, requirements on performance are still growing. The approach taken is to design feedback and feedforward control, using the same level of detail of
the dynamics of the system.
Moreover, after careful design of the controller, the motion errors left are mainly due to external disturbances such as shocks, vibrations, measurement noise etc. In this respect, and
facing the fundamental limitations of feedback control, it is most important to accurately address the dynamics and characteristics of these disturbance signals. This is what we call data-based or disturbance-based control.
Examples are the use of the periodic nature of signals, yielding iterative learning and repetitive control. This will be illustrated using a Compact Disc drive and Wafer stepper as example motion systems.
