    Today, control system technology is driven by the microprocessor, and, as is well known, microprocessor-based control systems are much more flexible than their analog predecessors. The combination of new hardware (microprocessors, smart sensors, power electronics) and the increased flexibility requires a much more integrated hardware/analysis approach to control system synthesis.

    Recently, the author and his colleagues developed the Federated Computer-Aided Design System. The objective of this paper is to discuss the experience gained by using this system on a broad range of problems. From this perspective, the needs and future trends in the area are discussed. Of primary interest is the need for a blending of software engineering and controls to provide more effective mic... View full abstract»

    The concept of the Control Engineers Workbench (CEWB) is discussed, and the Control Engineers Workbench is defined as a set of software tools that are integrated to assist with the implementation of real-time control systems. The control system is assumed to consist of both analog and microcomputer electronics (which, in part, may reside in VLSI silicon). The workbench therefore supports, most imp... View full abstract»

  • The early stages of robotics

    Publication Year: 1985, Page(s):27 - 31
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (626 KB)

    The early stages of robotics are recalled by tracing the evolution of robot manipulator programming languages. Initial manipulator control was by means of procedures embedded in a high-level language. This evolved into a geometric-based planning and execution system where planning was time-independent and execution was time-efficient. With the addition of sensor feedback and the need to develop th... View full abstract»
