Hall 2, Research and Technology, Booth A64: IMMS presents an inverse pendulum as a demonstrator for real-time machine control with 5G radio communication.

IMMS will exhibit at the Hannover Messe 2019 as part of the FAST CLUSTER.

Since machines or robots will in future be controlled and regulated in closed control systems with information transmitted via 5G for process optimization purposes, IMMS has developed an inverse pendulum as a demonstrator in cooperation with the TU Dresden. As one of the most demanding tasks in control engineering, it places particularly high requirements on the reliability and real-time behavior of the controlled system. The aim is to maintain the inverse pendulum in its unstable resting position. The nine centimetre long pendulum stands freely on a 0.2 mm narrow edge on a moving linear axis. To keep it that way, the pendulum is observed by a high-speed camera. If there are deviations, the 5G mobile radio standard transmits them in real time to the motion control on the axis in order to balance the pendulum. With today's mobile radio technologies such as LTE, the information about the deviation would arrive too late and the pendulum would tip over. Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator
