ESE paper receives 2014 O. Hugo Schuck Best Paper Award
Konstantinos Gatsis, doctoral student in Electrical and Systems Engineering (ESE), Alejandro Ribeiro, Assistant Professor in ESE and George Pappas, Joseph Moore Professor and Chair of ESE, are the recipients of the 2014 O. Hugo Schuck Best Paper Award in the Theory category for their paper, Optimal Power Management in Wireless Control Systems. This award is given by the American Automatic Control Council (AACC), in recognition of the paper's contributions to theory. Criteria for selection include the quality of the written and oral presentation, the technical contribution, timeliness, and practicality.
This paper is significant in that it considers a closed-loop control system implemented over a wireless channel and provides the theoretical framework to explore the trade-off between system performance and power consumption of the wireless sensors.
AACC is an umbrella organization encompassing the groups and individuals of member societies with an interest in control science and engineering. In the U.S., AACC is the leading organization responsible for pursuing cross-disciplinary connections and collaborations for broad-based societal impact.
