    The problems of idle speed control and transmission control are reviewed to illustrate how control-theoretic techniques are used in the design of power-train control systems. The structure of current automobile control systems is examined. Possible future system structures and the role of control theory in the development of such systems are discussed.<> View full abstract»

    Recent activity in nonthermodynamic modeling of automotive internal combustion engines with spark ignition, which are inherently nonlinear, is reviewed. A fundamental nonlinear model of the engine is presented, and a linear control-oriented model is derived from the nonlinear process. Techniques for experimental verification are examined, and a practical linear engine example incorporating multira... View full abstract»

    Basic issues and methods in tracking control system design are considered, with emphasis on the logical nature of the design process. The controller transfer functions are not required to share the same poles, resulting in added design freedom. Classical root-locus-based design is placed in perspective, and practical ways of choosing the overall system transfer function to meet tracking performanc... View full abstract»
