    This article revisits some history of the IEEE Control Systems Society from the IEEE Centennial Lecture presented at the 1984 CDC conference meeting by Stephen Kahne in his article "Where Is the Beef?" (which originally appeared in IEEE Control Systems Magazine, vol. 5, no. 2, pp. 3-8, May 1985). It was in October 1954 that the Institute of Radio Engineers (IRE) started a Professional Group on Aut... View full abstract»

    While advanced batteries have enabled great improvements in society's mobility and energy efficiency, the high cost of batteries hampers further market penetration. Battery technology improvements are most often sought in electrochemical laboratories. But control engineers have an important role to play in advancing this technology. As a first step, the battery community must begin to merge the kn... View full abstract»

    This article describes a technique for distinguishing and quantifying medium access control (MAC) and physical layer (PHY) interference in error-prone 802.11 networks. This technique, is fully distributed, allowing each station to estimate interference individually. The estimator is based on an extended Kalman filter coupled to a mechanism for revealing abrupt changes in state. The network state i... View full abstract»

    This article reviews applications of the Kalman filter to atomic timing. The objectives of the article are twofold - present diverse applications and concepts in a consistent fashion, both in regard to notation and mathematical concepts. and develop the key ideas in a tutorial form by introducing the basic concepts and then applications.we apply the Kalman filter to clock estimation, clock monitor...

    Challenges associated with the scarcity of bandwidth and power in wireless communications have to be addressed. For the state-estimation problems discussed in the paper, observations about a common state are collected by physically distributed terminals. To perform state estimation, wireless sensor networks (WSNs) may share these observations with each other or communicate them to a fusion center ... View full abstract»
