The paper presents the pole placement approach to solve problem of conventional, based of proportional-derivative controllers, as well as robust, based of fuzzy controller, anti-sway crane control. The methods of robust gain-scheduling crane control system and selecting minimal set of operating points were shown. The fuzzy robust controller, based of Takagi-Sugeno-Kang inference system, was presented, as well as results of experiments, carried out using laboratory model of an overhead traveling crane, were shown in the paper.
