“The future of control”

Authors: Karl J. Åström,
Affiliation: Lund University
Reference: 1994, Vol 15, No 3, pp. 127-134.

Keywords: Automatic control, history, theory, applications

Abstract: This paper gives a personal view of the emergence, development and future of automatic control. The assessment is that automatic control has been very successful, but that we are now at a crossroads where we have to decide if we want to take an holistic view with full systems responsibility or if we want the field to fracture into a collection of subspecialities.
