Inexpensive actuators are often more rugged than costly alternatives, a particularly attractive feature for military applications or operations in harsh environments. A common drawback of inexpensive actuation is variability in response that contributes to tracking error. This can be ameliorated without substantial expense by the application of large feedback that not only enhances tracking performance… Read more
Cyber-physical systems have received a great deal of attention in recent years, but decades after we began to use computers to control physical systems. We will start with a few remarks on the definition of cyber-physical system and challenges in the field. We will then go on to describe two research projects on CPS at… Read more
