Laboratory Overview
Environment and Control System Lab.
The laboratory proposes new idea and concepts for sophisticated control and energy saving system with environmental friendliness for mechanical systems and agriculture systems. Our concept is for not only global environment but also operators those who work with. To this end, our laboratory applies advanced control theories; model predictive control, adaptive control, data-driven PID control etc. applying commercially available hardware.
Laboratory Character As applications, control system design for water hydraulic system with very low environmental load, rehabilitation system design with artificial muscles driven by tap water, energy saving system design for fluid power system, and temperature & vapor-pressure deficit control system in greenhouse etc. are proposed and their performances are examined. Many students present their results in international/domestic conferences.
