The Impact of Automatic Control Research on Industrial Innovation

Bring together the theory and practice of control research with this innovative overview

Automatic control research focuses on subjects pertaining to the theory and practice of automation science and technology subjects such as industrial automation, robotics, and human-machine interaction. With each passing year, these subjects become more relevant to researchers, policymakers, industrialists, and workers alike. The work of academic control researchers, however, is often distant from the perspectives of industry practitioners, creating the potential for insights to be lost on both sides.

The Impact of Automatic Control Research on Industrial Innovation seeks to close this distance, providing an industrial perspective on the future of control research. It seeks to outline the possible and ongoing impacts of automatic control technologies across a range of industries, enabling readers to understand the connection between theory and practice. The result is a book that combines scholarly and practical understandings of industrial innovations and their possible role in building a sustainable world.

The Impact of Automatic Control Research on Industrial Innovation readers will also find:
* Insights on industrial and commercial applications of automatic control theory.
* Detailed discussion of industrial sectors including power, automotive, production processes, and more.
* An applied research roadmap for each sector.

This book is a must-own for both control researchers and control engineers, in both theoretical and applied contexts, as well as for graduate or continuing education courses on control theory and practice.
