Increased availability of low-cost electronics has created a new breed of control system components; so called " smart " components , which can perform control responsibilities in the actua-tor and sensor components as well as in the controller. " Smart " components can communicate bi-directionally in networked control systems. We identify opportunities for(More)

—In the early days of computer control, only one centralized computer was responsible for executing the algorithms. Increasingly, computer control algorithms reside inside individual system components in a distributed fashion. Variable camshaft timing (VCT) is an appealing feature for automotive engines because it allows optimization of the cam timing over(More)
