    The efficient distribution of water is a subject of major concern for water utilities and authorities [1]. While some leaks in water distribution networks (WDNs) are unavoidable, one of the main challenges in improving the efficiency of drinking water networks is to minimize leaks. Leaks can cause significant economic losses in fluid transportation and extra costs for the final consumer due to the... View full abstract»

    The art installation Flight Assembled Architecture [1] is one of the first structures built by flying vehicles. Culminating in a 6-m-tall tower composed of 1500 foam modules (see Figures 1 and 2), the installation was assembled by four quadrocopters in 18 hours during a four-day-long live exhibition at the Fonds R?gional d'Art Contemporain (Regional Contemporary Art Fund) du Centre in Orl?ans, Fra...

    The past three decades have seen an explosive growth of the body of theoretical research in the area of networked control systems (NCSs). The immense interest for this subject is justified by the fact that society can benefit enormously if the control community can break free from the dependence on dedicated point-to-point wiring for communication between sensors, actuators, and controllers.

    Model-predictive control (MPC) is an optimization-based control technique that uses 1) a mathematical model of a system to predict the system's behavior over a given horizon, 2) an objective function that represents what system behavior is desirable, 3) a mathematical formalization of operational constraints that have to be satisfied, 4) measurements of the state of the system at each time step, a...
