About this book


This book focuses on the design, implementation and applications of embedded systems and advanced industrial controls with microcontrollers. It combines classical and modern control theories as well as practical control programming codes to help readers learn control techniques easily and effectively. The book covers both linear and nonlinear control techniques to help readers understand modern control strategies.

The author provides a detailed description of the practical considerations and applications in linear and nonlinear control systems. They concentrate on the ARM® Cortex®-M4 MCU system built by Texas Instruments™ called TM4C123GXL, in which two ARM® Cortex®-M4 MCUs, TM4C123GH6PM, are utilized. In order to help the reader develop and build application control software for a specified microcontroller unit.

Readers can quickly develop and build their applications by using sample project codes provided in the book to access specified peripherals. The book enables readers to transfer from one interfacing protocol to another, even if they only have basic and fundamental understanding and basic knowledge of one interfacing function.

Classical and Modern Controls with Microcontrollers is a powerful source of information for control and systems engineers looking to expand their programming knowledge of C, and of applications of embedded systems with microcontrollers. The book is a textbook for college students majored in CE, EE and ISE to learn and study classical and modern control technologies. The book can also be adopted as a reference book for professional programmers working in modern control fields or related to intelligent controls and embedded computing and applications.

Advances in Industrial Control reports and encourages the transfer of technology in control engineering. The rapid development of control technology has an impact on all areas of the control discipline. The series offers an opportunity for researchers to present an extended exposition of new work in all aspects of industrial control.

About the authors

Dr. Ying Bai is a Full Professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Johnson C. Smith University in USA. His special interests include: Intelligent controls, soft-computing, mix-language programming, fuzzy logic controls, robotic controls, robots calibrations and fuzzy multi-criteria decision making. His industry experience includes positions as software and senior software engineers at companies such as Motorola MMS, Schlumberger ATE Technology, Immix TeleCom, and Lam Research. Since 2003, Dr. Bai has published about 50 academic research papers in IEEE Trans. Journals and International conferences. He also published fourteen (14) books with publishers such as Prentice Hall, CRC Press LLC, Springer, Cambridge University Press and Wiley IEEE Press in recent years. The Russian translation of his first book entitled Applications Interface Programming Using Multiple Languages was published by Prentice Hall in 2005. The Chinese translation of his 8th book entitled Practical Database Programming with Visual C#.NET was published by Tsinghua University Press in China at the end of 2011.

Dr. Zvi S. Roth received his B.Sc and M.Sc both in Electrical Engineering from the Technion Israel Institute of Technology in 1974 and 1979, respectively, and his Ph.D in Systems Engineering from Case Western Reserve University in 1983. He joined the Florida Atlantic University (FAU), where he is presently a Professor in the Department of Computer and Electrical Engineering and Computer Science.

Dr. Roth has published two books, Fundamentals of Manipulator Calibration with Drs. Benjamin Mooring and Morris Driels (John Wiley 1991), Camera-Aided Robot Calibration with Dr. Hanqi Zhuang (CRC Press 1996).

Dr. Roth served as Chair of the EE Department from 1993 to 1997, and from 2005 to 2008 as Director of the State of Florida funded Florida-Israel Institute. Additional research interests that Dr. Roth has developed over the years include Automation Design for Biotechnology, Submicron Analog Electronic Circuits Design and Modeling of Biological and Physiological Systems. He published over 50 refereed papers in journals and conferences and graduated 9 PhDs.
