Cyber Physical Systems Decision Making Mechanisms and Applications

Release Date: 2017-11-11
Genre: Technology & Engineering

As systems continue to evolve they rely less on human decision-making and more on computational intelligence. This trend in conjunction with the available technologies for providing advanced sensing, measurement, process control, and communication lead towards the new field of the CyberPhysical System (CPS). CyberPhysical systems are expected to play a major role in the design and development of future engineering platforms with new capabilities that far exceed today's levels of autonomy, functionality and usability. Although these systems exhibit remarkable characteristics, their design and implementation is a challenging issue, as numerous (heterogeneous) components and services have to be appropriately modeled and simulated together. The problem of designing efficient CPS becomes far more challenging in case the target system has to meet also real-time constraints. CyberPhysical Systems: Decision Making Mechanisms and Applications describes essential theory, recent research and large-scale user cases that addresses urgent challenges in CPS architectures. In particular, it includes chapters on: Decision making for large scale CPSModeling of CPS with emphasis at the control mechanismsHardware/software implementation of the control mechanismsFault-tolerant and reliability issues for the control mechanismsCyberPhysical user-cases that incorporate challenging decision making

The Industrial Ethernet Networking Guide

Author: Donald J. Sterling
Publisher: Delmar Pub
ISBN: 076684210X
Release Date: 2003
Genre: Technology & Engineering

Discover the power of industrial Ethernet (or "iE"), an affordable, open, and universal alternative to nearly 230 fieldbus protocols currently available for industrial control! The only book of its kind, The Industrial Ethernet Networking Guide paints an in-depth picture of key iE technologies, components, and functions. Gleaning information from industrial automation and Ethernet technology, the authors show readers how this new technology can be used across the corporate enterprise to enable a wealth of productivity improvements, as well as e-business, supply-chain, and agile/virtual manufacturing solutions. This highly engaging, fast-paced Guide begins by discussing the "Ethernet Communication Revolution" as a new framework for factory-to-business infrastructure, taking into account factors in networking the factory floor, as well as potential benefits and limitations of an iE solution. Subsequent chapters detail how to create an iE control network and enable valuable interconnection solutions, from factory-focused remote monitoring and wireless capabilities to VMI and ERP e-business solutions. This unbiased, factory perspective equips all readers – including plant managers, process control engineers and other IT professionals, senior executives, technical consultants and more – with a common base of knowledge to draw upon when planning their own iE network and solutions.

Automatisieren mit PROFINET

Author: Raimond Pigan
Publisher: John Wiley & Sons
ISBN: 9783895789496
Release Date: 2015-10-29
Genre: Science

PROFINET is the first integrated Industrial Ethernet Standard for automation, and utilizes the advantages of Ethernet and TCP/IP for open communication from the corporate management level to the process itself. PROFINET CBA divides distributed, complex applications into autonomous units of manageable size. Existing fieldbuses such as PROFIBUS and AS-Interface can be integrated using so-called proxies. This permits separate and cross-vendor development, testing and commissioning of individual plant sections prior to the integration of the solution as a whole. PROFINET IO, with its particularly fast real-time communication, fulfills all demands currently placed on the transmission of process data and enables easy integration of existing fieldbus systems. Isochronous real-time (IRT) is used for isochronous communication in motion control applications. PROFINET depends on established IT standards for network management and teleservice. Particulary to automation control engineering it offers a special security concept. Special industrial network technology consisting of active network components, cables and connection systems, together with recommendations for installation, complete the concept. This book serves as an introduction to PROFINET technology. Configuring engineers, commissioning engineers and technicians are given an overview of the concept and the fundamentals they need to solve PROFINET-based automation tasks. Technical relationships and practical applications are described using SIMATIC products as example.
