Interactive Environments and Software Tools for CACSD
No Thumbnail Available
The main functional and support facilities offered by interactive environments and tools for Computer-Aided Control System Design (CACSD) and reference examples of such software systems are presented, from both a user and a developer perspective. The essential functions these environments should possess and requirements which should be satisfied are discussed. The importance of reliability and efficiency is highlighted, besides the desired friendliness and flexibility of the user interface. Widely used environments and software tools for CACSD, including MATLAB, Mathematica, Maple, and the SLICOT Library, serve as illustrative examples.
