Award for best SMC journal paper on Cybernetics
Yesterday, David Abbink and Max Mulder received an important award at the at the IEEE Conference on Systems, Man and Cybernetics, the flagship conference of the IEEE SMC society. The society’s most prestigious award for scientific publications, the Andrew P. Sage Best Transaction Paper, was awarded to “Manual Control Cybernetics: State-of-the-art and Current Trends”, published in the Golden Jubilee Edition of IEEE Transactions on Human-Machine Systems (vol. 48, no.5, pp. 468-485, 2018). We are very proud that this long-term team-effort has received such important recognition!
About the paper
The paper <download it here> provides an overview of manual control cybernetics, as advanced in the last two decades by Max Mulder (first author) in collaboration with many colleagues in his lab (Daan Pool, Rene van Paassen, Peter Zaal, Frank Drop and Kasper van der El) and our lab (David Abbink and Erwin Boer). The paper state-of-the-art and future trends for models and identification techniques to disentangle the multiple nested loops of neuromuscular, vestibular and visual control in human manual control behavior.
