- Taylor and Francis 1999; US$ 92.95
An investigation of the interface between the technical literature's theoretical results and the problems that practising engineers face - and that engineering students will face - every day on the job. It demonstrates the extensive applications of quantitative feedback theory and seeks to bridge the gap between theory and practice. The book contains... more...

While sailing has a long tradition, both as a means of transportation and as a sport, robotic sailing is a fairly new area of research. One of its unique characteristics is the use of wind for propulsion. On the one hand, this allows for long range and long term autonomy. On the other hand, the dependency on changing winds presents a serious challenge... more...

Robotic sailing offers the potential of wind propelled vehicles which are sufficiently autonomous to remain at sea for months at a time. These could replace or augment existing oceanographic sampling systems, be used in border surveillance and security or offer a means of carbon neutral transportation. To achieve this represents a complex, multi-disciplinary... more...
