HIGH-TECH SYSTEMS

In the high-tech systems market, there is a continues drive to create machines with more accuracy, higher speeds, and disruptive technologies. This requires advanced control systems which use multiple sensor inputs and machine models to calculate the optimal steering of the actuators. Controllab provides these control systems.

CONTROL SOFTWARE

Controllab is specialized in the analysis and development of control software. The basis of our success is the digital twin, i.e a 3D simulation model, that we create for every machine. The twin enables us to develop and thoroughly test the software before the real machine has been built.

APPLICATIONS

Controllab has build up expertise for several applications.

  • Machine Building: System dynamics, control engineering, HIL simulation, ..
  • Robotics: System dynamics, control engineering, HIL simulation, ..
  • Electric Machinery: HIL simulators for battery storage and diesel electric generators, …

Battery Storage Simulator

HUBCAP is an exclusive network of Digital Innovation Hubs with a goal to bring new microelectronics-enabled products, processes, and business models to life.

Wind Turbine Installation

High Wind develops new installation techniques to install offshore wind turbines. The Boom Lock system is a smart tool that allows offshore cranes to install wind turbine components at high wind speeds.

Motion Compensated Crane

Controllab investigated the feasibility of an OPTS crane. The OPTS is a crane mounted on a ship’s deck that can transport passengers safely to and from the ship.

Motion Compensated Access Bridge

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.

HIL Simulation

The Seakeeping and Manoeuvring Basin of the Maritime Research Institute Netherlands (MARIN) allows model ships to run independently in waves, followed by a towing carriage containing measurement equipment.
