Control technology underpins the operation of many, and arguably all, modern high technology systems. Such systems include transportation (aircraft, high speed trains, marine vessels, automobiles), telecommunication systems, electricity networks, mining, minerals processing and agriculture. A particular area where control is playing an increasingly important role is industrial electronics. In this paper we will adopt a control engineering perspective to reflect on the opportunities and challenges that exist in the application of advanced control to these systems.
