    The rapid increase in complexity and size of digital systems has reduced the effectiveness of old design methodologies based on physical prototyping. Prototyping via simulation must be used to achieve design cost and time-to-market goals when designing large digital systems. This virtual prototyping design methodology often permits the first physical prototype to be a manufacturable product. A two... View full abstract»

    Engineering instructors frequently use group assignments to provide students experience in dealing with complex open-ended problems. Usually, they do not worry about training or maintaining teams, evaluating the effectiveness of the teams, or assessing the contribution of each individual. With the establishment of the ABET EC2000 criteria, ignoring these aspects becomes unacceptable. This report d... View full abstract»

    An experimental laboratory for undergraduate courses in automatic control has been created at the Politecnico di Milano, Milano, Italy, to provide students with an environment where theoretical concepts can be applied, and the "look and feel" of a real-world problem, though small and simple, can be experienced. The laboratory is meant both for the basic course, titled Fundamentals of Automatic Con... View full abstract»

    Computer vision has historically been taught as a graduate subject since few examples of the discipline were being practiced in mainstream engineering. In recent years, the incorporation of multimedia into embedded devices has drawn some vision topics into mainstream attention. Examples of consumer products include digital video recorders, cellular phones, and automobile collision-avoidance system... View full abstract»

    Phase-lead and -lag compensation is one of the most commonly used techniques for designing control systems in the frequency domain, especially when the Bode diagram or root locus is used. In most cases, the graphic-based approximation or trial-and-error approach has been utilized in the design process. This paper presents the exact and unique solution to the design of phase-lead and phase-lag comp... View full abstract»
