Internship Iterative Learning Control (6 months)

Eindhoven

Iterative Learning Control (ILC) is a well-known controller technique, resulting in significant improvements especially at repetitive movements. However a major drawback is that ILC is not widely featured and supported at industrial controllers.

The NTS-Group is an international group of specialist companies that develops and manufactures high-quality opto-mechatronic systems and modules for international machine manufacturers (OEMs), with a focus on the imaging & printing, semiconductor, medical and analytical industries. NTS-Group provides engineering, assembly and sheet-metal work for its exacting customers.

NTS Systems Development, located in Eindhoven, Wijchen and Nijmegen, employs approximately 190 people and is the development division of the NTS-Group, which focuses on the disciplines Mechanical Design, Electrical Hardware, Software, Electronics Design and Vision. We provide support in these areas for the specific engineering activities of our clients. We have the capability to take over total responsibility for production and optimization from the client at any moment during the development process, and to transfer this to the other companies within the NTS-Group.
