Here is a semester project in the 2012 Mechatronic control systems engineering module at San Jose State University. This is a Proportional-Integral-Derivative controlled (PID), 6 degree of freedom (6-DOF) Stewart platform, which basically means it has six axes on the top plate. This prototype uses 6 radio controlled servo motors instead of the traditional use of hydraulic jacks or electronic actuators. (this video has sound)
A PID controller continuously calculates an error value as the difference between a measured process variable and a desired setpoint. The controller attempts to minimize the error over time by adjustment of a control variable, such as the position of a set of servo motors or actuators, to a new value, given by a weighted sum:
where Kp ,Ki , and Kd, all non-negative, denote the coefficients for the proportional, integral, and derivative terms, respectively (sometimes denoted P,I, and D).
P accounts for present values of the error , and is determined by the direction and magnitude the correction needs to be applied (e.g. if the error is large and positive, the control variable will be large and negative),
I accounts for past values of the error (e.g. if the output is not sufficient to reduce the size of the error, the control variable will accumulate over time, causing the controller to apply a stronger action through P), and
D accounts for possible future values of the error, based on its current rate of change. This part determines when and at what rate it needs to reduce the magnitude of its action, e.g as the ball fast approaches the desired set point at the centre of the plate.
Oh Those Wacky Super-Shippers, They Just Continue to Misread the KDS Video Body Language!
Super-shippers sadly keep disrespecting Sam and Cait’s wishes.
They don’t understand body language.
They don’t understand actors. They don’t realize how an actor can use her whole body and much of her soul when she is acting to convincingly portray a character, right down to fine emotional nuance. They confuse what an actor can do with her body when acting (or “selling” a show), with what the actor’s body does when they are just being themselves.
Super-Shipper: “I think all of our hearts were broken that day but that shouldn’t stop you believing they’re together. It’s quite clear that they were lying due to how uncomfortable they were. Two people who were always friends and who had nothing to hide would have joked about it and laughed it off. They wouldn’t have looked like someone just killed their puppy. That denial should make you question everything, instead of make you give up.”
Oh dear Super-Shipper, Sam and Cait weren’t lying. The only ones who believe that are your fellow super-shippers who are as skilled as you are in fooling themselves. What seemed “off” to you about Sam and Cait’s behavior was the fact that for once they weren’t acting at all. They were being themselves: two people you really don’t know. Oh, glimpses of who they are come out in interviews from time to time but when they are doing interviews they are also “selling” the show and themselves as actors. The two people whom you saw in the KDS interview were Sam and Cait without the show-selling facade, and without the echoes of Jamie and Claire.
I hate going back to this lame video, god it’s a shocker….but I wanted to highlight how well KDS handled this interview and in a way took control. She’s a quick thinking, smart gal who can smell a rat from a mile away and I think Sam and Caitriona underestimated her ability to think on her feet and give her viewers something that made them question things. As KDS is speaking, Sam and Cait’s faces look as if it’s dawning on them that she’s not saying exactly what they expected her to. In defence of Sam’s remark that fans think it’s real and feel duped (that it’s not real) she quickly implies that it’s normal with great screen couples that people buy into the fantasy element of it and then adds ‘So let’s just let you believe what you want’. Right after she says this look at her face. First the smirk looking directly at Sam, then the side eye which to me says 'I know what I believe and it sure as heck ain’t what you two just said!’
Cait quickly rebuts the KDS 'believe what you want’ comment with 'which I just stuck a pin in and bursted it’ and Sam quickly finishes what he’s been trying say with 'What? You’ve acted it, you’ve lied to us.’
When Cait answers the initial question it’s like the standard response she gives during interviews or when asked about Sam, it rolls off her tongue….without engaging in any eye contact with KDS mind you…but to me it is all very casually said considering the context. Sam is so awkward, he’s dying, actually I think he shat his pants…a typical male who doesn’t like tension. It’s a walk in the park for Cait, this girl knows how to protect numero uno and handle herself. However, regardless of what was said (or not said) for whatever reason it was very important that they denied being together regardless of how lame it appeared. Since the video there has been a gradual media build up placing renewed focus on their relationship. Perhaps they aren’t together and felt the need to clarify this but geez…why put yourself through that kind of humiliation! Who does that?! Just walk the red carpet with someone other than your costar! For Cait to insult the intelligence of a feminist fanbase thinking we want them to be like Jamie and Claire?? It just makes me cringe…and Sam…the only thing I can think of is that he was trying to put the focus back onto their acting being so good that people think it’s real…perhaps with the idea of promoting Cait/Outlander just prior to GGs and to squash any rumours that might have threatened their chances…anyway the mind boggles but I certainly respect and admire KDS even more after this!
