Karl Ulrich (MIT)
Data Set Information:
This data was given to me by Karl Ulrich at MIT in 1986. I didn't record his description at the time, but here's his subsequent (1992) recollection:
"I seem to remember that the data was from a simulation of a servo system involving a servo amplifier, a motor, a lead screw/nut, and a sliding carriage of some sort. It may have been on of the translational axes of a robot on the 9th floor of the AI lab. In any case, the output value is almost certainly a rise time, or the time required for the system to respond to a step change in a position set point."
"This is an interesting collection of data provided by Karl Ulrich. It covers an extremely non-linear phenomenon - predicting the rise time of a servomechanism in terms of two (continuous) gain settings and two (discrete) choices of mechanical linkages."
