Control Fundamentals and Latest Developments in Automotive Control
31st March - 1st April 2008, The Double Tree Hilton Hotel, Dearborn, USA
This meeting has since been held. (Register your interest for the next automotive control event here.)
This workshop is jointly organised by National Instruments and the ACTC which is an international training and technology transfer body that includes a number of the leading automotive, aerospace, and embedded control tools suppliers.
The first day of the workshop is intended to be a tutorial introduction of system identification techniques and model-based predictive control.
The second day focuses upon new developments in automotive propulsion technologies. There should be ample time for questions and discussion and the delegates will receive copies of all of the notes presented.
There is no charge for up to two delegates from companies being members of the ACTC. Since the number of free places is limited, these will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
