CONTINEX is a MATLAB toolbox for bifurcation analysis based on the development platform COCO (computational continuation core). CONTINEX is specifically designed for coupling to experimental test specimen via DSPACE, but provides also interfaces to SIMULINK-, ODE-, and so-called equation-free models. The current version of the interface for experimental set-ups implements an algorithm for tuning control parameters, a robust noise-tolerant covering algorithm, and functions for monitoring (in)stability. In this talk we will report on experiments with an impact oscillator with magnetic actuators and algorithmic challenges we were facing during toolbox development.
