Focusing on dead–zone, backlash, and hysteresis, the authors show how real–time computations can counteract the effects of these nonlinearities. In many applications their approach avoids the need for costly and specialized hardware.
This easy–to–use, self–contained presentation of the entirely new adaptive inverse design is geared towards practicing engineers, researchers, and graduate students.
