ILM modules. The Interactive Learning Modules is a set of interactive tools developed as support to the well-known book of Åström and Hagglünd, Advanced PID Control. The set of interactive modules that comprise the ILM Project is presented to support the teaching and learning of basic automatic control concepts. The site provides also some other control education interactive tools: 1) SISO-GPCIT: Generalized Predictive Control Interactive Tool for SISO systems. 2) MIMO-GPCIT: Generalized Predictive Control Interactive Tool for MIMO systems.3) MRIT: Interactive Tool for Mobile Robotics. 4) Filtered Smith Predictor Interactive Tool: An Unified approach for Dead-time Process Control. 5) ITCRI: An Interactive Software Tool for Control-Relevant Identification. 6) ITSIE: An Interactive Software Tool for System Identification Education. 7) SISO-QFTIT: Quantitative Feedback Theory Interactive Tool for SISO systems.
