New Trends in Observer-Based Control, Volume: 1 Design presents a clear and concise introduction to latest advances in observer-based control design.

This book gives a comprehensive tutorial on the new trends in design of observer-based controllers for which the separation principle is well established. In addition, since the theoretical developments remain more advanced than the engineering applications, more experimental results are still expected.

It covers a wide range of applications. The book contains worked examples which make it ideal for advanced courses as well as for researchers starting to work in the field. This book is also particularly suitable for engineers wishing to enter the field quickly and efficiently.

Olfa Boubaker received the Ph.D. degree (2000) in Electrical Engineering from the National Engineering School of Tunis (ENIT) and the Habilitation Universitaire degree (2007) in Control Engineering from the National Engineering School of Sfax (ENIS), Tunisia. Since 1997, Professor Boubaker is a Permanent Visitor of the Laboratory of Analysis and Architecture of Systems (LAAS) of CNRS, Toulouse (France). She is currently Full Professor at National Institute of Applied Science and Technology (INSAT) of University of Carthage where she was actively engaged, since 2000, in teaching and research in Control theory, Nonlinear Systems and Robotics. Since 2017, she is the Head of the Research Laboratory ‘Energy, Robotics, control and Optimization’. Professor Boubaker is closely associated with several reputable international journals as a reviewer. She is Member of the scientific editorial board of the International Journal of Advanced Robotic Systems (SAGE publishing), Guest Editor for the journals Complexity and Mathematical Problems in Engineering (Hindawi Publishing) and Regional Editor of the Book series Emerging Methodologies and Applications in Modelling, Identification and Control (Elsevier Publishing). She also serves as scientific committee member in several international and peer-reviewed conferences. Professor Boubaker is the principal author of (03) books, (12) book's chapters and the author/coauthor of more than 100 peer-reviewed papers.
Quanmin Zhu is Professor of control systems at the Department of Engineering Design and Mathematics, University of the West of England, Bristol, UK. He obtained his MSc in Harbin Institute of Technology, China in 1983 and Ph.D. in Faculty of Engineering, University of Warwick, UK in 1989. His main research interest is in the area of nonlinear system modelling, identification, and control. His other research interest is in investigating electrodynamics of acupuncture points and sensory stimulation effects in human body, mode
