Quanser – Innovation in Engineering

2DOF HelicopterQuanser is the world leader in the design and manufacture of advanced systems for real-time control design and implementation used in education and research. Their control challenges and solutions are ideal for implementing and evaluating feedback strategies such as PID, LQG, H infinity, fuzzy, neural nets, adaptive and nonlinear controllers. Quanser control challenges and solutions are operational in 2,500 institutions worldwide including universities, research laboratories and commercial organizations.

Quanser offers a variety of control challenges that are appropriate for all levels of university education and research. Their control experiments are distinctively modular which enable you to cost effectively employ the same power plant to perform experiments of varying complexity. By coupling the appropriate module to the plant you achieve configurations ranging from simple position servo control to advanced MIMO systems such as the Seesaw/Pendulum. When all is said and done you receive a greater variety of experiments to explore and save money in the process!

Implement and evaluate feedback strategies such as PID, LQC, H infinity, fuzzy, neural nets, adaptive or nonlinear controllers with Quanser’s range of control experiments including:

Linear Motion Control

Rotary Motion Control

Flight Control System Design

Robotic and Autonomous Systems

Haptic Systems and Applications

Structural Dynamics and Analysis

Industrial Applications and Process Control

Quanser’s systems are uniquely modular and use the same base components that can be multi-purposed throughout a wide range of experiment configurations. So by adding and removing various modules you extend the functionality of your investment and more importantly create a greater variety of experiments and challenges to explore: no other solution provider comes close to providing this kind of flexibility.

All Quanser’s control challenges can be managed via their complete line of control solution software and data acquisition hardware so you can create fully self-contained control workstations. Their solutions can be used to deploy an embedded system, explore hardware-in-the-loop applications, as well as control a number of alternative hardware systems. Quanser systems are fully compatible with MATLAB, Simulink and Real-Time Workshop and operate in a variety of computing environments including: Windows 95/98/Me/NT/2000.
