An exhibition that has yet to be

Schmidt, Günther and Bissell, Christopher C. (2013). An exhibition that has yet to be. IEEE Control Systems Magazine, 33(5) pp. 67–71.



Winfried Oppelt was one of the great pioneers of German control engineering. In 1972 he made a detailed proposal for a permanent exhibition on control engineering at the Deutsches Museum, Munich. The intriguing proposal, which was never realised, included a set of detailed hand drawings by Oppelt. This paper, drawing on an earlier German publication, presents Oppelt's ideas and indicates why it was not accepted.
