The goal of the course is to apply and compare the basic design methodologies in automatic control theory on some of the most common lab equipments available for didactic purposes. Furthermore, the course will provide some introduction to the working principles behind real-time operating systems and remote control through web. Employed software: MATLAB/SIMULINK.
