I’m sorry to report that the CPIS system really doesn’t exist at all. It is entirely an APRIL FOOLS PRANK. Think of it as a little bit of engineering humor, (Maybe there is such a thing after all.) brought to you by your friends at Control Engineering .

Although, wouldn’t it be nice if you could get something like this?

The real question is, did we fool you? As crazy as it sounded, did you believe it, at least for a while?
