AIMotroniX stands for Augmented Intelligent Model-based electronic Control Systems. Our mission is to help engineers and managers to develop efficient and robust model-based control solutions and to establish transparent and efficient development processes.
We support many aspects around the development of model-based controllers. Our tech consulting service covers the setup of the process landscape and organization around model-based control systems. Our tech coaching activities incorporate direct support of your engineering teams on the technical level by teaching and coaching topics around methodology, setup and direct technical challenges. Finally, we also provide engineering services, where we develop functionalities or tools according to your needs.
What is Model-Based Controls?
Model-based controls in general refers to a methodology, where physical or empirical (also data-driven) models are used as integrated parts of a control system and/or its calibration and validation tool chain. The term control system refers to open-loop and closed-loop control functions, as well as diagnostic functions.
The main advantage of the model-based approach is the «design once, apply everywhere» philosophy: The core of a control functionality is the model. It needs to be developed once. Thanks to the usually physical modelling approach, the model can be easily adapted to all system variants in the portfolio by parameter tuning. In many occasions, both the topology and the parameters of the control system can be derived directly from the underlying model. So, at the end of the day, not only the model, but also the control system can be easily and efficiently tuned to different variants, mostly by use of simulation.
