Motion systems are a key enabling technology in manufacturing machines and scientific instruments. Indeed, these motion systems perform the positioning with high speed and accuracy, where typical requirements are in the micrometer or even nanometer range. This is achieved through a mechatronic system design, which includes actuators, sensors, mechanics, and control. The aim of this chapter is to outline advanced motion control for precision mechatronics. Both feedback and feedforward control are covered. Their specific designs are heavily influenced by considerations regarding efficient and accurate modeling techniques. Extensions to complex multivariable systems are outlined, as well as challenges induced by envisaged future application requirements.
