    Many new technologies and methodologies are impacting on control applications, but PID control is still the most widely used technique. It is argued in this paper that a major reason for this is that PID control has become standardised. This means that the PID algorithm is now treated as a (black box) component which may be used as a building block for creating complex control systems. This paper ... View full abstract»

    Engineers in industry today are facing a revolution in the way that embedded control systems are developed. This is being driven not just by the competition, but by higher customer expectations of safety and reliability and by government regulations, for example, in the automotive industry there are ever more stringent requirements to limit engine emissions. As a result of these pressures, enginee... View full abstract»

    Neurofuzzy algorithms have been extensively developed for the real time/online identification of nonlinear a priori unknown dynamical processes. As with all rule base paradigms they suffer from the curse of dimensionality, restricting their practical use to low dimensional control problems. The paper shows how adaptive construction algorithms based on additive decomposition techniques can overcome... View full abstract»

    Multi-objective genetic algorithms (MOGA) are, a powerful decision-making aid for the control system designer. It is possible to search for many Pareto-optimal solutions concurrently, while concentrating on relevant regions of the Pareto set. Also, a human decision maker may interactively supply preference information to the algorithm as it runs. Applications described include the design of contro... View full abstract»

    In the last two decades, the control community has witnessed several major developments in robust control. Theoretical results, especially in H control, have produced a wealth of techniques with which to understand, analyse and design controllers for uncertain systems. A variety of textbooks on robust control is now available and some major applications of advanced control have b... View full abstract»

    Economic pressures are dispersing machine intelligence away from centralised computers towards distributed fieldbus devices. Meanwhile the control concept is being extended to include other operational factors such as quality assurance, process data management, just-in-time maintenance, and plant safety and availability. As credible sensing and actuation are essential prerequisites for advanced co... View full abstract»

    Covers some of the issues involved in using control systems sciences in engineering innovation. In particular, the author focuses upon product innovation in engineering, and argues that control systems theory is a powerful agent for technological innovation. As an illustration the author shows how a holistic use of modelling methods, identification tools, signal processing and controller synthesis... View full abstract»
