    Cars and trucks are susceptible to accidents due to rollover. In the United States in 2005, 21.1% of a total of 54,718 deaths in vehicle crashes were caused by rollover [1]. Significant research has therefore been de voted to detecting and preventing rollover through active control. Numerous approaches attempt to detect or pre dict wheel liftoff using onboard sensing and a combina tion of automatic steering and braking to keep the wheels on the ground [2]-[4]. Rather than focusing on how to keep the wheels on the ground, it is also useful to under stand how to control a vehicle while two wheels are in the air. This understanding may enable the design of control laws that can safely return the vehicle to the ground after inadvertent tip-up. View full abstract»

    The development of food recipes that are appetizing and nutritious is typically thought to be beyond the reach of science and engineering. In particular, chemistry and thermodynamics, not to mention sensory and aesthetic aspects, render this goal challenging for numerical methods despite advances in computational power.

    Wind energy is a fast-growing interdisciplinary field that encompasses multiple branches of engineering and science. Despite the growth in the installed capacity of wind turbines in recent years, larger wind turbines have energy capture and economic advantages, the typical size of utility scale wind turbines has grown by two orders of magnitude. Since modern wind turbines are large, flexible structures operating in uncertain environments, advanced control technology can improve their performance.The goal of this article is to describe the technical challenges in the wind industry relating to control engineering.

    Research in bipedal robotics aims to design machines with the speed, stability, agility, and energetic efficiency of a human. While no machine built today realizes the union of these attributes, several robots demonstrate one or more of them. The Cornell biped is designed to be highly energy efficient. View full abstract»
