Handbook Of Networked And Embedded Control Systems (Control Engineering)

The vast majority of control systems built today are embedded; that is, they rely on built-in, special-purpose digital computers to close their feedback loops. Embedded systems are common in aircraft, factories, chemical processing plants, and even in cars–a single high-end automobile may contain over eighty different computers. The design of embedded controllers and of the intricate, automated communication networks that support them raises many new questions―practical, as well as theoretical―about network protocols, compatibility of operating systems, and ways to maximize the effectiveness of the embedded hardware. This handbook, the first of its kind, provides engineers, computer scientists, mathematicians, and students a broad, comprehensive source of information and technology to address many questions and aspects of embedded and networked control. Separated into six main sections―Fundamentals, Hardware, Software, Theory, Networking, and Applications―this work unifies into a single reference many scattered articles, websites, and specification sheets. Also included are case studies, experiments, and examples that give a multifaceted view of the subject, encompassing computation and communication considerations.

This is a very goog book that covers essential topics from fundamentals to applications of networked and embedded systems with theories and up-to-date techniques. In particular, I like the chapters of "Bluetooth in Control" and "Embedded sensor networks". Plus the chapters giving fundamentals and theories, it is worthy!
