Dear all,
I am trying to build a look up table to solve the position. It is basically a voltage-position conversion problem.
I will define the position in cartesian coordinates (x,y,z)
Each point of the position will have 3 volatge measured.
For example, at (0,0,0) the voltage is [5,1,2]
and at (1,0,0) the voltage is [3,2,4]
i will have 1000 points data.
How can i generate a look up table that when the input is [?,?,?] voltage, the output is [x,y,z] coordinate.
For example if the input voltage is [3,2,4] then the output will be (1,0,0)
It is also okay to use simulink or matlab
Thank you ver much

Maybe
f(x,y,z) = v1
g(x,y,z) = v2
h(x,y,z) = v3
Three equations for contour in three unknowns x,y,z where f,g and h are the equations for the surface of voltage components 1,2 and 3.

Use fmincon (or maybe better ga, since the objective function doesn't look differentiable) to solve the following problem:
min:( interp3(xdata,ydata,zdata,v1data,x,y,z) -v1q)^2 + (interp3(xdata,ydata,zdata,v2data,x,y,z)-v2q)^2 + ...
(interp3(xdata,ydata,zdata,v3data,x,y,z)-v3q)^2
for x,y,z under the constraints
0<=x,y,z<=10
Here, v1data,v2data and v3data are your voltages at (xdata,ydata,zdata) and (v1q,v2q,v3q) is the voltage combination for which you want to find the coordinates (x,y,z).

Dear sir,
I am trying to use the ga to build the 2D system
It can compute a solution but the output keeps varying. (not very accurate)
So i tried to set the options:
options = optimoptions(@ga,'FunctionTolerance',1e-16,'MaxGenerations',150,'MaxStallGenerations',150,'ConstraintTolerance',1e-16)
The output becomes more accurate
however, i found that the computation time for the ga is quite long for each output (1-2 seconds)
As my application is a real time tracking system, this situation is not ideal
is there any way to keep the accuracy while shortening the run time?
thank you very much
