Every mechatronic system has to be provided with a certain level of intelligence, for properly acting as a single individual or as a member of a team of cooperating agents.
Sometimes consolidated control and coordination algorithms are sufficient for achieving the desired behaviours. Other times the peculiarities of the analyzed scenario require the usage of not standard strategies or the identification of new control solutions.
Thanks to the strong linkage with the academic and scientific community and the frequent participation to international conferences, Graal Tech people are up-to-date on the recent achievements about control systems algorithms.
If a proper solution can be found in literature, it is identified, analyzed and customized to the specificities of the considered problem. Otherwise, innovative approaches are investigated and new algorithms or control techniques are eventually conceived, as witnessed by several publications from Graal Tech people on international journals, magazines and conference proceedings.
Once the developed algorithmic framework, either for a single mechatronic system, or for a team of cooperating agents, is sufficently ready for being assessed on the physical systems, its functioning is often first validated, formally and/or through simulative campaigns.
To this aim, whenever possible, a mathematic model describing the relevant characteristics of every involved mechatronic system is preliminarily obtained, for allowing both a formal validation and a more realistic simulation.
