    Decompression modeling of divers is a research field that is over 100 years old and since the beginning has been studied mainly as a clinical and biomedical problem. The topic is largely unexplored by the technological sciences using methods and theories for modeling and control. This article outlines a structure where the process of bubble formation is modeled as a nonlinear dynamic model and then used to design a state estimator and model-based predictor. Procedures are then calculated using explicit MPC. We further discussed dive-computer implementations using approximate explicit solutions. Finally, we showed practical differences for divers using computers that implement this approach. When future advances in sensor technology are made, the present structure can be further developed to include more feedback control of the estimator and optimal control formulation.

    Time-delays are important components of many dynamical systems that describe coupling or interconnection between dynamics, propagation, or transport phenomena in shared environments, in heredity, and in competition in population dynamics. This monograph addresses the problem of stability analysis and the stabilisation of dynamical systems subjected to time-delays. It presents a wide and self-contained panorama of analytical methods and computational algorithms using a unified eigenvalue-based approach illustrated by examples and applications in electrical and mechanical engineering, biology, and complex network analysis.

  • Depth Control of the Brennan Torpedo [Historical Perspectives]

    Until about 1900 the word torpedo referred to a static naval mine. However, the modern mobile weapon came into being became a significant factor in naval warfare.The Brennan torpedo was deemed less suitable than the then dominant Whitehead torpedo for use aboard ships because it was wire guided, but it was accepted for coastal defense, launched from land. The trajectories of early torpedoes were haphazard, and these devices came to be controlled in bearing and depth by mechanical sensors. Initially these sensors took a wide variety of forms before the introduction of reliable gyroscopes. Gyros have dominated the field ever since, such is their utility. From a control engineering perspective it is interesting to consider the earlier contenders, which displayed great ingenuity. The Brennan torpedo was provided with a tangential flyball governor.
