Honeywell is a U.S. Fortune 100 company that invents and manufactures technologies to address tough challenges linked to global megatrends such as safety, security, and energy. With approximately 122,000 employees worldwide, including 19,000 engineers and scientists, Honeywell has an unrelenting focus on quality, delivery, value, and technology in everything it makes and does.

You can’t see most of Honeywell’s products, but you can count on them. Your safe flight might depend on Honeywell’s collision avoidance and traffic control systems, wing ice and wind shear sensors, autopilots, and landing systems. Honeywell’s control systems keep your home and office at just the right temperature. Honeywell’s space-age fibers make body armor bullet-resistant. And, as leading makers of safer substitutes for CFCs, Honeywell helps protect the earth’s ozone layer. www.Honeywell.com

United Technologies Research Center (UTRC) is an internationally recognized corporate research organization of United Technologies Corporation (UTC) that conducts research and development across a range of technology areas to drive its mission of “growth through innovation.” With four worldwide locations (East Hartford, CT; Berkeley, Ca; Cork, Ireland; and Shanghai, China) UTRC partners with UTC business units and renowned external research organizations to impact organic growth of the Corporation through new product and process innovations. The operating units of UTC include: Pratt & Whitney (aircraft engines), Sikorsky (helicopters), Otis (elevators and escalators), Carrier (HVAC systems), Hamilton Sundstrand (aerospace systems), UTC Power (including UTC Fuel Cells), and UTC Fire & Security (products & services). Our products require increasingly sophisticated dynamical system modeling and control to achieve the levels of performance demanded by our customers. The most challenging control problems are highly multidisciplinary and require a collaborative, concurrent engineering approach. UTRC has a history of meeting these challenges by assembling integrated teams drawing talent from our business units, UTRC, and academic partners who come together to deliver innovative modeling and control solutions and technologies with both business and academic impact. www.utrc.utc.com

The European Embedded Control Institute, EECI, www.eeci-institute.eu has been created in May 2006, in the framework of the HYCON Network of Excellence (FP6-IST), a funded European Community project (2004-2009). EECI is a "lightweight" association under the French Association Law 1901, based on volunteer work by its members. Its role consists in: stimulating new multi-national and multi-disciplinary research on complex and networked control systems; breaking down the barriers between the traditional disciplines; being a motor for the dissemination of methods and tools; promoting the education of students and researchers; and encouraging the transfer of methodologies to industry. In particular, EECI annually organizes a series of Modules of one week (21 hours) taught by renowned experts from all over the world and are open to all graduate students, engineers and researchers who want to acquired main control methodologies. For the 2011 edition, see www.eeci-institute.eu/GSC2011 Master or PhD students can apply for a grant for trip and stay (500 EUR per module). Currently, EECI is: member of the Chamber B of the European Platform ARTEMISIA www.artemisia-association.org ; partner of the FP7-ICT NoE HYCON2 www.hycon2.eu ; parter of the FP7-ICT CSA EUCLID www.euclid-india.eu; and coordinator of the French ANR WINPOWER.

PendCon is a company that designs, builds, and sells laboratory experiments for control system education. These experiments are intended for use in a laboratory which accompanies or follows a basic or advanced course on control system design. Some are also suited for research purposes. Most of the PendCon experiments are mechatronic systems. PendCon offers various types of controllers: an analogue PID controller and two kinds of digital controllers. Typical examples for basic experiments where PID control can successfully be applied are the rate and the position control experiment. Advanced experiments are the reaction wheel pendulum and the double pendulum. They require more sophisticated methods of linear state space control or nonlinear control. Highlights are the self-erecting double pendulum, the uncertain double pendulum, and the triple pendulum. www.pendcon.de
