Functional Safety Impacts in Autonomous and Self-Learning Control Systems - Part 1-4
We have pulled together a four part series covering 'Functional Safety Impacts in Autonomous and Self-Learning Control Systems' on 25th May, 1st June, 8th June and 15th June at 1pm BST.  You can sign up for all events at the one time, so please get involved so join us to hear our experts cover many aspects of this fascinating topic.

Adaptive Control, Machine Learning and AI are creating an inflexion point for Automated and Autonomous Systems.  Ubiquitous connectivity enables deployment of these systems at scale enabling new businesses and transforming others.

This series will provide a cross industry platform to share ideas and techniques to delivery safe autonomous systems that include learning as part of their function.

 on Wednesday 19th May at 1pm
teal bookeh lightsThis talk gives an overview of the recent, novel control system developments for a powerful TDFM system, which integrates advanced embedded control and sensing algorithms using FPGA devices. Specifically, it introduces the design of two robust controllers, which are used in different scanning modes for controlling the vertical position of the TDFM’s sensor-tip, considering the complex nonlinear dynamics therein. Also, this talk presents the development of the real-time, observer-based sensorless reconstruction algorithms for the tip-sample interaction force at high speed. Novel practical design approaches are introduced, thereby, ensuring the accuracy, speed, and robustness of the digital control implementations (running at 32 MHz sampling rate for instance) of complex linear and nonlinear control structures.

Group Information
IET Technical Networks
Control and Automation is an integral part of engineering and impacts upon all IET Technical and Professional Networks. This Network strives to be a central repository for all control and automation needs throughout the UK and the rest of the world.

This community has been established to represent all those with an active interest in Automation and Control. It will be relevant to those involved with the design, implementation, construction, development, analysis and understanding of control systems.
