    This article provides a tutorial on the development of a complete and systematic optimal and robust control theory for SISO systems using only preclassical tools growing out of the Routh stability test and the polynomial Diophantine equation. The presented analysis problems are the computations of signal and system energy (two-norm) and system resonance peak (∞-norm). The presented synthesi... View full abstract»

    During the spring of 2013, I taught a massive open online course (MOOC), Control of Mobile Robots, to over 40,000 students worldwide. Online resources for higher education have received significant attention during the last year, but upper-level engineering classes have been virtually absent from all the major MOOC content providers(Udacity, Coursera, edX).

    Most electrical and mechanical engineering curricula include courses in controls and mechatronics, with mechanical engineering curricula also including system dynamics and vibrations courses. The laboratory component for these courses is often limited and involves using a limited number of experimental setups. At many institutions, the laboratories associated with these courses are not taken in th... View full abstract»

    The first undergraduate control course is usually on automatic control theory. Correctly understanding the concepts in that course has far-reaching implications for students. Linearization is a standard topic covered in this introductory course. A nonlinear measurement-based approach is presented here to aid in the teaching of linearization. The pedagogical objective is to help students understand... View full abstract»
