Abstract

This paper describes a software environment for simulating, visualizing, and evaluating robust multivariable controller performance for a cart-pendulum-seesaw system. Different simulation and animation models may be selected by the user. Users are also able to alter model and controller parameters on the 'fly' - thus allowing them to quickly examine different scenarios. Microsoft Direct3D three dimensional graphics are used for animation. Graphical indicators and real-time plotting are also employed to help users abstract-out key phenomena. The environment also accommodates data exchange with MATLAB. The interactive MoSART Cart-Pendulum-Seesaw (CPS) Environment is shown to be a valuable tool for enhancing both research and education. Examples are presented to illustrate its utility.
