Abstract This paper presents the application of an output feedback nonlinear receding horizon control algorithm to a laboratory seesaw equipment. This control law guarantees exponential stability of the equilibrium and allows one to consider the presence of control and state constraints. Since the specific control application requires a small sampling interval, the nonlinear control law is computed off-line for different values of the initial state. Then, an approximating function is derived with the aid of a neural net, which is subsequently implemented for online computations.
