    An automatic pilot has been built that can drive an autonomous land vehicle in real time. The purpose of the pilot is to generate vehicle control commands that will direct the vehicle from the starting point to the final destination without hitting unforeseen obstacles or leaving the vicinity of the planned path. The pilot uses a single microprocessor and sensor range measurement to generate vehic... View full abstract»

    This paper describes the application of approximated predictors to compensate error-sampled systems. The study was made by implementing the predictors in aZ-80 microprocessor to compensate a servomechanism simulated on an analog computer. The effects of the sampling rate and variations in the model parameters on the stability of the system were observed. The addition of approximated pre... View full abstract»
