    In this issue, we invite Bruno Teixeira to explain the difference between the Kalman filter and the Kalman predictor. Bruno, who is a Ph.D. student at Federal University of Minas Gerais in Brazil, provides a complete review of the relevant equations in a convenient, common format. View full abstract»

    This article describes a drug scheduling method based on a reduced-order model, which does not require estimates of all of the parameters and states of the full-order model. To this end, we divide the full-order model into two subsystems, one of which is modified to approximate the full-order model. We show that the suggested method drives the HIV patient state into the LTNP region of attraction. ... View full abstract»

    It is important to evaluate closed-loop FES (functional electrical stimulation) control systems using standard time- and frequency-domain performance metrics to facilitate the discussion of results between research groups. Moreover, uniform reporting of the performance of control methods expedites the process of developing clinically useful controllers by concentrating research efforts on promisin...

    To investigate and develop unmanned vehicle systems technologies for autonomous multiagent mission platforms, we are using an indoor multivehicle testbed called real-time indoor autonomous vehicle test environment (RAVEN) to study long-duration multivehicle missions in a controlled environment. Normally, demonstrations of multivehicle coordination and control technologies require that multiple hum... View full abstract»

    This article describes new perspectives on SPM-related science and technology, based on systems and control theory. These perspectives have led to a better understanding of SPM technology, overcome hurdles that limited the efficacy of SPM, and resulted in new modes of SPM-based interrogation. ThNcAFM, based on systems principles, has made it possible to image with resolution as high as 0.25 Aring ... View full abstract»

    The stated objective of this book is to "develop a unified analysis and control design framework for impulsive and hybrid dynamical systems using a Lyapunov and dissipative systems approach." The book is organized into 13 chapters and includes an appendix section. Some of the topics covered include: stability theory for time-variant and time-varying impulsive systems; extending the notion of dissi... View full abstract»
