Applied Mechanics Reviews Audio Interview: Prof. Karl Johan Åström
56 minutes, 52 seconds

Prof. Karl Johan Åström is a pioneer and statesman in the fields of automatic, adaptive, and computer-aided control engineering and system identification, whose fundamental contributions to scholarly and applied research have been uniformly recognized. This AMR audio interview describes his experiences at the interface between academic research and industrial applications, a story of how fortune rewards the bold, and the risks of sending feedback control signals over large distances across manual phone exchanges.

About This Journal

The ASME Journal of Mechanical Design (JMD) serves the broad design community as the venue for scholarly, archival research in all aspects of the design activity with emphasis on design synthesis. JMD has traditionally served the ASME Design Engineering Division and its technical committees, but it welcomes contributions from all areas of design with emphasis on synthesis. JMD communicates original contributions, primarily in the form of research articles of considerable depth but also technical briefs, design innovation papers, book reviews, and editorials.
