Control Seminar

Development challenges for Embedded Controller Applications

Michael BalohDr.Emmeskay Inc.

The author discusses his experiences and observations about the development of control systems for industrial applications. The main point of the presentation will be to convey the important issues that engineers face when creating today's embedded systems. Challenges range from practical issues to theoretical ones, but in either case, they have profound impact on the types of systems that are being developed and will finally be brought to production. Many of these challenges are
related to the scale of the problems that engineers are working In fact, the scale of the systems requires entirely new principles of engineering to address scale and complexity. These challenges can be as mundane as the tools needed for information and resource management to questions about the theoretical limits of design validation.
