Example: wallFinder System Approach a wall, stopping a desired distance d i in front of it. d i = desiredFront d o = distanceFront t d o K = . 5 t d o K = 1 t d o K = 2 t d o K = 8 What causes these different types of responses? Structure of a Control Problem (Simple) Control systems have three parts. + X Y E S C controller plant sensor The plant is the system to be controlled. The sensor measures the output of the plant. The controller specifies a command C to the plant based on the difference between the input X and sensor output S . 1 6.003: Signals and Systems Lecture 11 March 11, 2010 Analysis of wallFinder System Analysis of wallFinder System: Block Diagram Cast wallFinder problem into control structure....
