Rapid Control Prototyping General Overview
What is Rapid Control Prototyping?
Rapid Control Prototyping (RCP) is a process that lets engineers quickly test and iterate their control strategies.
With RCP, mathematical models can be automatically imported (usually from MATLAB/SimulinkTM) on a real-time computer, with real input/output interfaces to connect to real-world systems.
By doing so, control functions can be rapidly assessed in a representative testing environment, so that coding and implementation runs smoothly afterwards in the project.
RCP allows design errors to be detected very early in the development process, avoids costly rework delays and leverages product quality overall. For R&D, technology demonstrations are also made possible even at early project stage, without coding or complex implementation work.
