IEEE Names Dr. Lennart Ljung for 2007 Control Systems Award
The IEEE,the world’s leading professional association for the advancement of technology, has named Lennart Ljung as the recipient of its 2007 Control Systems Award, recognizing his seminal contributions to system identification and its impact on industrial practice. His development of the system identification toolbox is a set of high-tech mathematical tools that are used in industrial applications – such as automobiles, airplanes and medical systems for diabetes.
Sponsored by the IEEE Control Systems Society, the award recognizes outstanding contributions to control systems engineering, science or technology. It will be presented to Ljung at the 2007 IEEE Conference on Decision and Control (CDC) in New Orleans on 12 December.
