About the book

Model Predictive Control (MPC) is a highly studied topic in the control system field. The inclusion of the dynamic models of a plant or process into the formulation aids in improving the control system performance. With advances in computational devices, MPC has started to gain recognition by practitioners in varied industrial sectors such as chemical engineering, industrial plant applications, and recently in robotics and autonomous vehicles, among many others. However, despite the advance and progress, implementation in uncertain environments and highly nonlinear scenario remains challenging. This book tries to visit the recent works on different types of Model Predictive Control, for example, Learning-Based MPC, Robust MPC, Nonlinear MPC, and Explicit MPC.

As the potential of MPC is vast, the book is aimed to cover the application of MPC in multi-applications such as automotive, robotics, agriculture automation, aircraft, chemical process engineering as well as unmanned surface vehicles, and other related topics. The editors believe that this book will be beneficial for researchers, practitioners, and a generic audience who has interests in control engineering in varied applications across different sectors. The publication is also expected to serve as centralized information gathering for aspiring researchers who are starting their research journey in the model predictive control topic. To summarising, this book is aimed to provide a comprehensive wide overview of the recent discussions on the Model Predictive Control topics.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Mia Miskulin

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
