    The McKibben artificial muscle is a pneumatic device characterized by its high level of functional analogy with human skeletal muscle. While maintaining a globally cylindrical shape, the McKibben muscle produces a contraction force decreasing with its contraction ratio, as does skeletal muscle. The maximum force-to-weight ratio can be surprisingly high for a limited radial dimension and for a conv... View full abstract»

    In a hydronic heating system, a boiler heats hot water that is pumped through pipes to radiators throughout the dwelling. This article describes an alternative to a traditional PI algorithm for hydronic heating system control. The control algorithm described is an adaptive fuzzy control (AFC) algorithm. It compactly combines a unique adaptation algorithm that automatically learns the steady-state ... View full abstract»

    Rapid prototyping and controlled motion evaluation of complex human-machine interfaces, from nuclear plant operation panels to deep submerged underwater vehicles to advanced airplane cockpits, require hardware-in-the-loop, man-in-the-loop, and software integration. What appears to be needed is specific software to give designers tools for analyzing and simulating complex and integrated projects. T... View full abstract»

    The author aims to give you some idea of what a pole is and why it is a significant concept. To do this, he gives a tour of the mysterious world that control engineers call the frequency domain. The article is intended as a conceptual preview for undergraduate students and assumes minimal technical background. The frequency domain is a kind of hidden companion to our everyday world of time. We des... View full abstract»
