Control in an Information Rich World: Report of the Panel on by Richard M. Murray

By Richard M. Murray

The sphere of keep an eye on presents the foundations and strategies used to layout actual and knowledge structures that preserve fascinating functionality by means of sensing and immediately adapting to adjustments within the setting. This record spells out a number of the customers for regulate within the present and destiny technological surroundings; describes the position the sphere will play in army, advertisement, and clinical purposes over the subsequent decade; and recommends activities required to let new breakthroughs in engineering and know-how in the course of the program of keep watch over examine.

The document files the findings and suggestions of the Panel on destiny instructions up to the mark, Dynamics, and platforms. The Panel was once shaped in April 2000 to supply a renewed imaginative and prescient of destiny demanding situations and possibilities within the box of regulate. The Panel was once chaired by way of Professor Richard M. Murray (Caltech) and was once shaped with the aid of an organizing committee including Professor Roger Brockett (Harvard), Professor John burns (VPI), Professor John Doyle (Caltech), and Dr. Gunter Stein (Honeywell).

This short but thorough record presents renewed imaginative and prescient, an in depth record of recent software components, and particular concepts for destiny study instructions up to speed, dynamics, and platforms, compiled by means of specialists within the field.Students, researchers, and selection makers attracted to figuring out extra approximately keep an eye on and its relevance to destiny technological purposes will achieve a lot from this designated assessment.

Example text

Control of networks extends beyond data and communication networks. Optimal routing and flow control of commercial aircraft (with emphasis on guaranteeing safe intervehicle distances) will help maximize utilization of airports. The (network and software) infrastructure for supply chain systems is being built right now, and simple automated supply chain management systems are beginning to be deployed. In the near future, sophisticated optimization and control methods can be used to direct the flow of goods and money between suppliers, assemblers and processors, and customers.

At the other extreme in time scale from the routing problem, we have optimal network planning, in which new links and nodes are 38 Chapter 3. Applications, Opportunities, and Challenges proposed to meet predicted future traffic demand. The routing problem is further exacerbated in wireless networks. Nodes with wireless modems may be mobile, and the address of a node may neither indicate where it is located nor how to reach it. Thus the network needs to either search for a node on demand or keep track of the changing locations of nodes.

A nurnber of fundamental questions arise as soon as the problem is posed this waj?. How can this mode) reduction be so general and robust, depending only upon the structure of quantum theory and not the details of any partielilar dynamical system? What are the general parameters that control the error bounds on this model reduction? What impact will this program have,if successful, on our basic interpretation of quantum mechanics? In addition, control can provide new,techniques for doing experiments, allowing us to better explore physical understanding: We hope that feedback control will provide a crucial experimental methodology for scrutinizing the validity of quantum measurement theory in realistic labioratory scenarios, especially with regard to the equations for conditional evolution of a system under continuous observation.
