These proceedings contain the selection of papers presented at the IFAC Workshop on Algorithms and Architectures for Real-Time Control (AARTC '97) held at the Vilamoura Marina Hotel, Vilamoura, Portugal.
Rapid developments in microelectronics and computer science continue to provide opportunities for real-time control engineers to address new challenges. New opportunities arise from such diverse directions as ever-increasing system complexity and sophistication, environmental legislation, economic competition, safety and reliability. These are typical themes which were highlighted at the IFAC AARTC '97 Workshop.
The AARTC '97 Final Programme consisted of 22 sessions covering major areas of software, hardware and applications for real-time control. Important topics were "soft" computing methods, software tools and architectures, embedded systems, parallel and distributed systems, architectures, custom processors, algorithms, estimation methods, neural networks, fuzzy methods, PID controllers, transport applications, industrial process control, robotics, and discrete-event and hybrid systems.
