This unusual book addresses a number of common control problems from an experimental engineering perspective, using low-cost, laboratory systems. In each case a laboratory set-up and experiments are described, along with theoretical context and results from implementation. It therefore complements conventional theoretical books and textbooks. It is highly international, emanating from a European Tempus project (IMPACT). In addition to its value to teachers of control, as well as students, it will be of interest to practising control engineers seeking new insight to their own practical problems.
