Precision Controls Laboratory (PCL)

Organizational focus: The Precision Controls Laboratory (PCL) conducts research on the design, modeling, and control of precision motion delivery systems.

Who they are: Based at the University of Waterloo, PCL is a research lab that focuses on enabling precise movements with the highest accuracy possible, in multi-axis machines. Application areas for their research includes high speed machine tools, robots, and electronic/semiconductor manufacturing equipment.

What they offer: PCL focuses on the development of high-speed, high-accuracy tracking control laws, efficient and robust identification techniques for drive parameter estimation, and smooth trajectory planning algorithms for jerk-continuous spline interpolation and feed rate optimization.
