Abstract

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has been developing the "Real-Time Control Systems (RCS)" software for more than two decades and using it for the design and implementation of complex intelligent control systems. Present applications of RCS include mining, manufacturing, robotics, and autonomous vehicles. In this paper we summarize the efforts at Ohio State University to develop an educational program for the NIST RCS that includes classroom instruction, a strong laboratory component (complete with small-scale RCS implementations), and a software handbook.
