Studio di traiettorie anti-sloshing rettilinee basate su leggi di moto segmentate

Study of rectilinear anti-sloshing trajectories based on segmented motion laws

Project Description

The term sloshing refers to the stirring of a liquid inside a container during its motion. Anti-sloshing motion laws are studied in the literature to avoid liquid spillage and, in general, control the motion of the liquid free-surface. This project aims to develop rectilinear anti-sloshing trajectories by simply choosing the duration of the segments in common segmented motion law (e.g. constant acceleration, trapezoid acceleration, …), instead of applying techniques based on a modification of a predefined trajectory (input shaping, IIR filtering, FIR filtering, …).
