MOTION COMPENSATED ACCESS BRIDGE
Client: SMST – HIL Simulation
SMST specializes in the delivery of lifting, transportation, drilling and pipe lay solutions, especially for the maritime and offshore industry. Their Telescopic Access Bridge (TAB) that can safely transfer personnel to an offshore structure. Controllab designed the motion compensation control algorithms for this bridge.
Model-based design is a technique that uses simulation models to design an application’s control system. These models can be reused at a later stage to test controller hardware. That’s hardware-in-the-loop simulation! Our role was introducing model-based design to the SMST control department, and providing tooling and training for this novel design method.
