About the book

This book will attempt to encompass theoretical advances in robust adaptive control systems embedded in a diversity of applications, covering classical fields like processes as well as robotics, autonomous vehicles, artificial intelligence, among others. Complexity in dynamical systems is often associated with particularities in the dynamics like nonlinearities, incomplete modeling, uncertainties, disturbances, time varying parameters and even potential faults. These particularities pose challenges in the design of control systems in order to achieve good performance, robustness and disturbance rejection. Thereupon robust enhancement and controller adaptation plays an important role in many practical uncertain scenarios. In addition to the now classical techniques for adaptive controller design like backstepping, speed gradient, sliding mode control, other new ones such as time-delayed control and an abundant group of intelligent control laws are appended. On the other side, accompanying the adaptive control law, an extensive pool of robust control methodologies has been proposed recently along with the most established ones. This book aims to overview the state-of-the-art in this matter.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Marijana Francetic

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.
