This text offers authoritative, comprehensive coverage of this new area of process control technology. From theory to practical implementation, this book is the first to treat the entire range of imaging techniques and their use in process control. The authors discuss the basic goals of process modeling and their application to automatic control; direct imaging devices and applications; techniques, hardware, and image reconstruction methods for process tomography; image enhancement and restoration; state estimation methods; and state space control system models, control strategies, and implementation issues. The book concludes with five chapters devoted to case studies and advanced applications.
