Good afternoon everyone. So as suppress
00:00:06
and mention I'm recent graduate in
00:00:09
mechanical engineering maybe my master
00:00:11
project industry it's yes yeah so but
00:00:17
the context of this collaboration that
00:00:22
comes from a collaboration between the
00:00:23
automatic control abbott. PFL and us
00:00:27
with centre for electronics and micro
00:00:28
technology initial there the goals
00:00:31
where on one hand to update CSTM on the
00:00:35
latest. Um control techniques developed
00:00:38
in the latter day PFL and on the other
00:00:41
hand for me to apply the knowledge that
00:00:42
I quite a during my classes here in a
00:00:45
professional environment. So during my
00:00:50
project I had the great opportunity to
00:00:51
work on two different systems that are
00:00:54
developed a TSTM the first system that
00:00:58
you can see here on the left is the
00:01:01
micro electromechanical system also
00:01:03
known as members. So very tiny actuator
00:01:06
that it is used to control the position
00:01:09
of them your so you can you can display
00:01:11
some your and on the on the setup that
00:01:13
you see there's a laser that is
00:01:15
reflected on the mirror. And then
00:01:17
projected on the screen. So by moving
00:01:20
the mirror you can draw some trajectory
00:01:22
with your laser beam the second system
00:01:25
on the right is also on a mobile
00:01:29
reflector but that only translating one
00:01:32
very dimension and this is part of an
00:01:35
of interferometer for weather satellite
00:01:38
that will be used to measure the
00:01:40
infrared spectrum of the atmosphere. So
00:01:44
for what the systems the the object of
00:01:46
a similar. So it's to design a
00:01:48
controller what is a controller so it's
00:01:52
it's an algorithm that is in charge of
00:01:56
making it a system follow some kind of
00:02:01
input reference to follow trajectory to
00:02:04
do some motion but also reject external
00:02:07
distribution. So but this for both
00:02:12
systems the idea of control is similar
00:02:14
but then you have very different
00:02:15
properties also different challenges
00:02:18
for the for the men smear. Um the
00:02:21
challenge was that the system the point
00:02:24
is the system very when you when you
00:02:26
move it. It's nonlinear. And also when
00:02:29
it gets warmer so so the we can change
00:02:32
and within one batch of manufactured
00:02:34
devices also the put is can change a
00:02:36
bit so you need something that is very
00:02:37
robust that work forces for different
00:02:40
systems. And for the interferometer. Um
00:02:46
there are other instruments around it
00:02:47
in in the satellites that will vibrate
00:02:50
and disturb the the motion of of the
00:02:55
mirror so you want to have a very nice
00:02:57
and smooth motion. So this is where my
00:03:02
adviser at EPFL was very helpful doctor
00:03:05
carry me who I developed the theory
00:03:08
that I applied but since I had
00:03:10
different constraints. And two
00:03:13
different systems I I was very happy to
00:03:16
to see him about once a month to asking
00:03:18
questions so you could write or in me.
00:03:21
And then I also who interact a lot with
00:03:23
my supervisor at SEM who I helped me
00:03:26
when I was making measurements and
00:03:28
implementing everything on the systems.
00:03:31
And working in the clean room
00:03:33
environment and so so to advisers is
00:03:36
also very interesting thing no but the
00:03:40
results of my project for the Memphis
00:03:44
mirror. I came up with the method that
00:03:47
the client that so that was an external
00:03:50
plan to asked us for this and he can
00:03:52
you could use this method with
00:03:55
different device that he would
00:03:55
manufacture you just press a button and
00:03:58
almost everything would be done
00:03:59
automatically and have something robust
00:04:01
that would work for new device and for
00:04:04
them interferometer the errors caused
00:04:09
by the external disturbances could be
00:04:11
reduced a lot as you can see on the on
00:04:14
the graph here you have the the error
00:04:18
on the Y axis and the displacement on
00:04:21
the horizontal X axis. And with the
00:04:23
previous controller that already
00:04:25
existed in blue the error and central
00:04:28
position was about fifty percent bigger
00:04:31
than what it is now in orange with them
00:04:34
the controller that I design now if I
00:04:38
summarise the benefits of master
00:04:41
project in industry I think it's it's a
00:04:44
which are the parts needed to work on
00:04:45
real projects with specifications that
00:04:47
are set by by clients and you learn a
00:04:51
lot from interacting with both surprise
00:04:54
or from a different and from the
00:04:55
industry and also from all the
00:04:57
experiments you do your your mistakes
00:04:58
of course. Um I also had a lot of
00:05:03
colleagues that we're very interesting.
00:05:05
And I increased my my network with this
00:05:08
project I also had approach needed to
00:05:10
visit the factory of one of an hour
00:05:12
week external clients as very enriching
00:05:15
and finally it was also reporting D for
00:05:19
me to publish something so part of my
00:05:21
results would be probably should the
00:05:23
American control conference this july.
00:05:25
So that's that's cool. I now in
00:05:31
conclusion. I think that that is
00:05:35
massive projects in industry combine
00:05:37
the advantages both of them this is in
00:05:42
academy and of the internship because
00:05:45
you do really scientific work. And your
00:05:49
participating in the latest research
00:05:51
but also you evolve in a professional
00:05:53
environment and it's really a nice
00:05:55
enter into the professional world. And
00:05:58
this is good was very valuable for me
00:06:01
and help me I think a little so to to
00:06:03
get a job after the end of my studies.
