  • The Inverted Pendulum in Control Theory and Robotics: From theory to new innovations
  • The inverted pendulum is a classic problem in dynamics and control theory and is widely used as a benchmark for testing control algorithms. It is also an area of active study, with many new innovations and applications - for example, the problem is solved in the technology of the Segway, a self-balancing transportation device. This book provides an overall picture of historical and current trends and the developments in nonlinear control theory, based on the simple structure and rich nonlinear model of the inverted pendulum. After an introduction to the system and open/current problems, the book covers the topic in four parts: applications of robust state estimation and control to pendulum-cart systems; controllers for under-actuated mechanical systems; nonlinear controllers for mobile inverted pendulum systems; and robust controllers based observers via Takagi-Sugeno or linear approaches. With contributions from international researchers in the field, The Inverted Pendulum in Control Theory and Robotics is essential reading for researchers, scientists, engineers and students in the field of control theory, robotics and nonlinear systems

  • RFID Protocol Design, Optimization, and Security for the Internet of Things
  • Radio-frequency identification (RFID) uses electromagnetic fields to automatically identify and track tags attached to objects. The tags contain electronically stored information. RFIDs have been widely used in countless applications such as object tracking, 3D positioning, indoor localization, supply chain management, automotive, inventory control, anti-theft, anti-counterfeit, and access control. The Internet of Things (IoT) promises a huge growth in RFID technology and usage. This book covers the topic of RFID protocol design, optimization, and security. RFID systems allow for a much easier and error free inventory management and tracking, but the probabilistic nature of RFID protocols makes the design and optimization complex and challenging. Most existing commercial RFID systems are not well designed. In this book, the authors aim to demystify complicated RFID protocols and explain in depth the principles, techniques, and practices in designing and optimizing them.

  • Fuzzy Logic Control in Energy Systems with design applications in MATLAB®/Simulink®
  • Modern electrical power systems are facing complex challenges, arising from distributed generation and intermittent renewable energy. Fuzzy logic is one approach to meeting this challenge and providing reliability and power quality. The book is about fuzzy logic control and its applications in managing, controlling and operating electrical energy systems. It provides a comprehensive overview of fuzzy logic concepts and techniques required for designing fuzzy logic controllers, and then discusses several applications to control and management in energy systems. The book incorporates a novel fuzzy logic controller design approach in both Matlab® and in Matlab Simulink& so that the user can study every step of the fuzzy logic processor, with the ability to modify the code. Fuzzy Logic Control in Energy Systems is an important read for researchers and practicing engineers in energy engineering and control, as well as advanced students involved with power system research and operation.

  • Transceiver and System Design for Digital Communications, 5th Edition
  • This applied engineering reference covers a wide range of wireless communication design techniques; including link budgets, error detection and correction, adaptive and cognitive techniques, and system analysis of receivers and transmitters. Digital modulation and demodulation techniques using phase-shift keyed and frequency hopped spread spectrum systems are addressed. The book includes sections on broadband communications and home networking, satellite communications, global positioning systems (GPS), search, acquisition and track, and radar communications. Various techniques and designs are evaluated for modulating and sending digital signals, and the book offers an intuitive approach to probability plus jammer reduction methods using various adaptive processes. This title assists readers in gaining a firm understanding of the processes needed to effectively design wireless digital communication and cognitive systems with a basic understanding of radar. Transceiver and System Design for Digital Communications has been fully revised and updated in this new fifth edition, with the addition of two new chapters addressing radar communications and volume search and track. Derived from numerous training workshops taught to engineers through private courses by the authors, this book will appeal to digital wireless communications system designers in both the commercial and military sectors, in particular new engineers requiring practical design techniques and fundamental understanding of modern systems that employ digital transceivers.

  • Trusted Communications with Physical Layer Security for 5G and Beyond
  • Physical layer security is emerging as a promising means of ensuring secrecy in wireless communications. The key idea is to exploit the characteristics of wireless channels such as fading or noise to transmit a message from the source to the intended receiver while keeping this message confidential from eavesdroppers. Topics covered in Trusted Communications with Physical Layer Security for 5G and Beyond include secrecy metrics for physical layer security over fading channels; trusted wireless communications with spatial multiplexing; directional modulation enabled physical layer wireless security; secure waveform for 5G systems; confidential and energy efficient communications using physical layer security; secure data networks with channel uncertainty; antenna selection strategies for wiretap channels; physical layer security for massive MIMO systems, millimeter wave cellular networks, non-orthogonal multiple access, multiuser relay networks, cognitive radio networks, MIMOME-OFDM systems; wirelessly powered communication systems and D2D-enabled cellular networks; and security solutions and applications at the physical layer, including case studies of secret key generation and secrecy coding in communication nodes and terminals.
