The various extensions for approximately flat systems are validated in simulation and experiments on a thrust vectored aircraft.
A system may exhibit a two layer structure where the outer layer is a flat system, and the inner system is not. We call this structure outer flatness. We investigate trajectory generation for these systems and present theorems on the type of tracking we can achieve. We validate the outer flatness approach on a model helicopter in simulations and experiment.

Abstract This thesis explores the paradigm of two degree of freedom design for nonlinear control systems. This produces movement trajectories that appear lifelike while still permitting the primary controller to execute useful tasks. The control scheme is implemented in the form of a novel nonlinear controller based on a dynamic model of the robot system.
This creates a general system where a practical application has been achieved through a controller grounded in theoretical mathematics. Designing a robot to move in a human-like way is intended to improve human-robot interaction for the next generation of robotic applications where robots are envisaged to work in close proximity to humans and elements of trust and predictability are linked to efficient working and safety.
