The top 5 most read articles online, from November 15-21, 2021, for Control Engineering covered Engineers’ Choice finalists, nanotube-based sensors, SCADA and automation, finite-state machines and IIoT and controller use. Links to each article below.

1. 2022 Engineers’ Choice Finalists: Vote now!

The official ballot is open for voting for Control Engineering North American print and digital edition subscribers, for a limited time. Cast your vote online at www.controleng.com/EngineersChoice.

2. Nanotube-based sensor can detect COVID-19 proteins

MIT engineers have designed a nanotube-based sensor that can detect COVID-19 without any antibody and could be used for other pandemic, improving worker health.

3. SCADA can accelerate automation, IIoT implementations

As industrial automation evolves, how do we keep speaking the same language? It helps to evaluate automation by functions, not components. Think about how industrial automation technologies like SCADA can accelerate application capabilities.

4. Finite-state machine for embedded systems

Get help for finite-state machine programming for embedded systems using C programming language.

5. How is IIoT changing industrial controller use, selection?

How are programmable logic controllers (PLCs) and industrial PCs (IPCs), embedded controllers, programmable automation controllers (PACs), smart input/output (I/O) modules, other logic devices and related software helping Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) promises envisioned? A webcast investigates.
