Wayne J. Book joined the Georgia Tech faculty in 1974 as an assistant professor. Over the years, he has maintained a longstanding interest in robotics and automatic controls, as well as in the special topic of his Ph.D. thesis, the control of flexible motion systems. Book was instrumental in the formation of the Computer Integrated Manufacturing Systems (CIMS) Program at Georgia Tech, serving as its founding director from 1983 to 1988. In 2001, Book was appointed to the HUSCO/Ramirez Distinguished Chair in Fluid Power and Motion Control. Shortly thereafter, he established the Georgia Tech Fluid Power and Motion Control Center. Book retired from Georgia Tech in June of 2011 and was granted emeritus status, and he continues to be active in robotics research today.
