In this paper, we present our most recent theory and the experimental setup to verify our research into an advanced automation technique that yields high performance, low cost optoelectronic alignment and packaging through the use of intelligent control theory and system-level modeling. Our approach is to build an a priori knowledge based model, specific to the assembled package's optical power propagation characteristics. From this model, a piece-wise linear inverse model is created and used in the "feed-forward" loop. If accurate models are determined, perfect tracking can be achieved. In addition to this feed-forward model, our controller is designed with feedback components, along with the inclusion of a built-in optical power sensor. We will also introduce the test bed that we have developed to verify our control loop algorithm and present initial results.
