Learn how to design and tune a PID controller to perform navigation tasks like dead reckoning.
You will understand the difference between open loop and feedback control designs and why the latter is more effective in getting accurate results. You will then learn how to use the PID block in Simulink® to design the feedback control loop specifically for the dead reckoning problem.
Mobile Robotics Training toolbox will be used for the simulation purposes.
A VEX EDR robot is used to demonstrate the performance of the dead reckoning algorithm implemented using the PID block in Simulink.
