Unique Experimental Plants to Explore Controls

Unique Experimental Plants to Explore ControlsFor over two decades Quanser focuses on development of systems and solutions for control education and research, helping to captivate and motivate engineering students with hands-on learning and drive innovation forward. Whether you are exploring strategies such as PID, LQC, H infinity, fuzzy logic, neural networks, adaptive or nonlinear control, you can find a Quanser-developed experimental platform to demonstrate and apply the concepts in the teaching lab or test the new theories in the research lab setting.

 
I am competing for the best students [with other departments] and I want to win, because the better the students I draw, the better ultimately my research is. The way to do that is by getting them excited about the work - and Quanser helps me to do that.

Variety and Value for Undergraduate Engineering Labs

Quanser experimental plants for teaching are ready to use, out of the box. They are open-architecture, modular and use the same peripherals, so that you can create a greater variety of challenges for students, while staying on budget. The plants are durable enough to accommodate enthusiastic undergraduates and deliver accurate, repeatable results. Most of the experimental plants for teaching labs come with the comprehensive courseware, including practical exercises and quick start resources that help you get the lab going faster. Plus you can rely on the ongoing and efficient technical support from the team that designed the plants.

Engineering Trainers for NI ELVIS Teach Fundamentals of Controls and Mechatronics

Quanser Engineering Trainers (QNET) represent a series of experimental plants designed exclusively for the National Instruments ELVIS platform. They are an effective tool for teaching controls fundamentals in various engineering disciplines, including electrical, mechanical, mechatronics, aerospace and biomedical . With QNET hardware-in-the-loop implementations, students can get hands-on experience in the most important aspects of engineering practice, including control, design and simulation.Comprehensive digital courseware with practical experiments, software VIs, instructional videos and other resources save educators considerable time while enabling students to cultivate deep understanding of engineering principles.

Accurate and Reliable Platforms for Advanced Research

Control is one of the most broadly applicable modern engineering methodologies. Researchers in virtually all of the engineering disciplines apply its techniques to realize ever more complex engineering systems. Nevertheless, it is often challenging to develop an effective research regimen that includes an advanced theoretical and algorithm framework and real-world implementation. Quanser plants offer a highly efficient platform for bridging this theory-implementation gap, offering dynamics of sufficient realism for physically relevant testing, and a real-time computational and modeling framework that allows for rapid testing of algorithms and concepts. Using such a combination, researchers are able to readily validate their research concepts with a physical system for a broad range of applications including flight control, unmanned vehicle applications, biomedical, rehabilitation and industrial robotics, haptics, automation, and more.
