Control Engineering Top 5 most read articles online, for Mar. 23-29, covered the 2015 Engineers' Choice winners, PID for motion control and robotics, Microsoft Windows 10 benefits for manufacturers, artificial intelligence for control engineering, and automation helping OEMs. Link to each article below.

1. 2015 Engineers' Choice Awards winners

A total of 26 winners and 27 honorable mentions were named for the 2015 Engineers' Choice Awards, which were voted on by Control Engineering's print and digital audience. 

2. Using PID for motion control, robotics

Advice follows on using proportional-integral-derivative (PID) tuning for motion control and robotics. High-end robotics with high dynamics and reasonably high accuracy of movement almost always require the use of these control algorithms for operation. 

3. Microsoft Windows 10 features may help manufacturers more than recent releases

Engineering and IT Insight: Nothing lasts forever. Microsoft Windows 10 is coming with features that may suit manufacturing, software developers, system integrators, and end users more than recent releases. 

4. Artificial intelligence for control engineering

Robotics, cars, and wheelchairs are among artificial intelligence beneficiaries, making control loops smarter, adaptive, and able to change behavior, hopefully for the better. 

5. Automation helps original equipment manufacturers innovate

Original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) show significant results for customers by applying modern automation to machine designs, reducing costs, improving throughput, and decreasing maintenance. Learn from three examples. 

The list was developed using CFE Media's web analytics for stories viewed on controleng.com, March 23-29, for articles published within the last two months.
