In this 2011 book world-renowned experts present a timely investigation of the prospects for reformed market-regulation after the financial crisis.
The central phenomenon of this book are embedded lead users (ELUs): employees of firms who experience emerging needs and profit from solutions to these needs (i.e. who exhibit lead user characteristics) in relation to one or more of their employing firm´s

Carsten-Constantin Soeldners investigation enables embedded systems firms to understand how they can open their systems to gain access to the ideas and solutions of external users and developers. Similar to smartphones with their large number of apps, firms are now beginning to open their embedded systems towards open innovation. Despite the large potential to increase innovativeness, firms face a variety of obstacles, such as the presence of safety and real-time constraints or the need to protect intellectual property. Carsten-Constantin Soeldner identified a variety of approaches how firms can still open their systems while not violating these constraints. The book is built on four different studies which comprehensively illuminate open innovation strategies for embedded systems. Dr. Carsten-Constantin Soeldner was a research associate at the Chair of Information Systems I (Prof. Dr. Kathrin Möslein) at the Friedrich-Alexander-University of Erlangen-Nuremberg. He also serves as a Managing Director in a consulting company.
Linux for Embedded and Real-Time Applications, Fourth Edition, provides a practical introduction to the basics, covering the latest developments in this rapidly evolving technology. Ideal for those new to the use of Linux in an embedded environment, the book takes a hands-on approach that covers key concepts of building applications in a cross-development environment. Hands-on exercises focus on the popular open source BeagleBone Black board. New content includes graphical programming with QT as well as expanded and updated material on projects such as Eclipse, BusyBox - configuring and building, the U-Boot bootloader - what it is, how it works, configuring and building, and new coverage of the Root file system and the latest updates on the Linux kernel.. Provides a hands-on introduction for engineers and software developers who need to get up to speed quickly on embedded Linux, its operation and capabilities Covers the popular open source target boards, the BeagleBone and BeagleBone Black Includes new and updated material that focuses on BusyBox, U-Boot bootloader and graphical programming with QT Doug Abbott is a consultant with over thirty years experience, specializing in hardware and software for industrial and scientific data acquisition and embedded product applications. Doug is also a popular instructor and seminar leader, who teaches classes in PC technology and real-time programming for University of California Berkeley Extension. He has taught the techniques of real-time programming and multi-tasking operating systems to hundreds of professional engineers. Doug Abbott is the principal of Intellimetrix, a consulting firm in Silver City, NM, specializing in hardware and software for industrial and scientific data acquisition and embedded product applications.

· Provides an overall understanding of all aspects of AC electrical drives, from the motor and converter to the implemented control algorithm, with minimum mathematics needed · Demonstrates how to implement and debug electrical drive systems using a set of dedicated hardware platforms, motor setup and software tools in VisSim and PLECS · No expert programming skills required, allowing the reader to concentrate on drive development · Enables the reader to undertake real-time control of a safe (low voltage) and low cost experimental drive This book puts the fundamental and advanced concepts behind electric drives into practice. Avoiding involved mathematics whenever practical, this book shows the reader how to implement a range of modern day electrical drive concepts, without requiring in depth programming skills. It allows the user to build and run a series of AC drive concepts, ranging from very basic drives to sophisticated sensorless drives. Hence the book is the only modern resource available that bridges the gap between simulation and the actual experimental environment. Engineers who need to implement an electrical drive, or transition from sensored to sensorless drives, as well as students who need to understand the practical aspects of working with electrical drives, will greatly benefit from this unique reference.
