Research output: Contribution to journalConference article


The application of an input shaped controller to a pneumatic crane system is the subject of this paper. Precise positioning of the crane and the suppression of the load-swing during and after the system's movement dictate the need for careful tuning of the shaper's parameters. The shaped system's performance is contrasted in experimental studies with that of a classical On/Off controlled case.
