How do PID-based systems deal with unknown changing characteristics? For
example, suppose a robot is supposed to pick up and manipulate objects of
varying mass, center of gravity, and possibly "inertial oddness" (e.g. a
closed vessel half-filled with liquid). From what I understand of PID
systems, they usually require that the system be tuned for a particular
amount of intertia, while some circumstances (like the above) require that
the system work with highly variable (and unknown) inertial effects.
