Top 5 Control Engineering articles, March 2-8: High-performance HMIs, Engineers’ Choice winners, alarm management philosophy, more
Control Engineering Top 5 most read articles online, for Mar. 2-8 high-performance HMIs, the 2015 Engineers’ Choice winners, alarm management philosophy, PID for motion control and robotics, and artificial intelligence for control engineering. Link to each article below.
Users and system designers consider how changing HMI strategy can help make operators better at their job and reduce those confused phone calls.
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.
The alarm philosophy document is a critical component to configuring and managing an effective alarm management program.
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.
Robotics, cars, and wheelchairs are among artificial intelligence beneficiaries, making control loops smarter, adaptive, and able to change behavior, hopefully for the better.
The list was developed using CFE Media’s web analytics for stories viewed on controleng.com, March 2-8, for articles published within the last two months.
