Keywords: Nonlinear control, gain scheduling, software

Abstract: Recent theoretical developments have improved the understanding of gain scheduled control and suggested new methods for design, analysis and implementation of such nonlinear control systems. An integrated software environment for gain scheduled local controller network design and analysis, including computer-aided modelling and system identification, is described. Sonic background theory is included, and a speed control design problem for an experimental vehicle illustrates the application of the approach.
