Advanced Autonomous Vehicle Design for Severe Environments

Author: V.V. Vantsevich
Publisher: IOS Press
ISBN: 9781614995760
Release Date: 2015-10-20
Genre: TECHNOLOGY & ENGINEERING

Classical vehicle dynamics, which is the basis for manned ground vehicle design, has exhausted its potential for providing novel design concepts to a large degree. At the same time, unmanned ground vehicle (UGV) dynamics is still in its infancy and is currently being developed using general analytical dynamics principles with very little input from actual vehicle dynamics theory. This technical book presents outcomes from the NATO Advanced Study Institute (ASI) ‘Advanced Autonomous Vehicle Design for Severe Environments’, held in Coventry, UK, in July 2014. The ASI provided a platform for world class professionals to meet and discuss leading-edge research, engineering accomplishments and future trends in manned and unmanned ground vehicle dynamics, terrain mobility and energy efficiency. The outcomes of this collective effort serve as an analytical foundation for autonomous vehicle design. Topics covered include: historical aspects, pivotal accomplishments and the analysis of future trends in on- and off-road manned and unmanned vehicle dynamics; terramechanics, soil dynamic characteristics, uncertainties and stochastic characteristics of vehicle-environment interaction for agile vehicle dynamics modeling; new methods and techniques in on-line control and learning for vehicle autonomy; fundamentals of agility and severe environments; mechatronics and cyber-physics issues of agile vehicle dynamics to design for control, energy harvesting and cyber security; and case studies of agile and inverse vehicle dynamics and vehicle systems design, including optimisation of suspension and driveline systems. The book targets graduate students, who desire to advance further in leading-edge vehicle dynamics topics in manned and unmanned ground vehicles, PhD students continuing their research work and building advanced curricula in academia and industry, and researchers in government agencies and private companies.

Eine alternative datenbasierte Systemdarstellung und deren Anwendung f r die Analyse und den Entwurf von Regelkreisen

Author: Tim Könings
Publisher: Springer-Verlag
ISBN: 9783658171919
Release Date: 2017-02-18
Genre: Technology & Engineering

Tim Könings entwickelt ein Verfahren für den datenbasierten Entwurf und die Analyse von Regelkreisen und Diagnosesystemen. Zu diesem Zweck wird eine datenbasierte Realisierung zweier alternativer Systemdarstellungen vorgeschlagen und entsprechende Algorithmen zu deren offline und online Berechnung hergeleitet. Daraus ergibt sich eine Vielzahl von Möglichkeiten, regelungstechnisch relevante Größen, wie z.B. Gap-Metrik und Stabilitätsradius, aber auch Reglerentwurfsverfahren in einer datenbasierten Form umzusetzen. Die so entwickelten Methoden werden mithilfe von drei industrierelevanten Fallbeispielen verifiziert und in Bezug auf deren potentielle Anwendungsfelder hin untersucht.

Active Fault Tolerant Control Systems

Author: Tushar Jain
Publisher: Springer
ISBN: 9783319688299
Release Date: 2017-10-20
Genre: Technology & Engineering

The book introduces novel algorithms for designing fault-tolerant control (FTC) systems using the behavioral system theoretic approach, and presents a demonstration of successful novel FTC mechanisms on several benchmark examples. The authors also discuss a new transient management scheme, which is an essential requirement for the implementation of active FTC systems, and two data-driven methodologies that are broadly classified as active FTC systems: the projection-based approach and the online-redesign approach. These algorithms do not require much a priori information about the plant in real-time, and in addition this novel implementation of active FTC systems circumvents various weaknesses induced by using a diagnostic module in real-time. The book provides graduate students taking masters and doctoral courses in mathematics, control, and electrical engineering an excellent stepping-stone for their research. It also appeals to practitioners interested to apply innovative fail-safe control techniques.

Identifikation dynamischer Systeme

Author: Christian Bohn
Publisher: Springer-Verlag
ISBN: 9783834821973
Release Date: 2016-12-13
Genre: Technology & Engineering

Das Werk vermittelt eine ausführliche und vertiefte Einführung in das Gebiet der Identifikation dynamischer Systeme. Verschiedene Verfahren werden dazu vorgestellt. Ziel bei allen Verfahren ist es, anhand von gemessenen Ein- und Ausgangssignalen eines technischen oder auch nichttechnischen Systems ein mathematisches Modell dieses Systems zu ermitteln, welches das tatsächliche Verhalten möglichst gut beschreibt. Dabei werden Identifikationsverfahren sowohl für lineare und nichtlineare Eingrößen- als auch Mehrgrößensysteme behandelt. Als Ergebnis erhält man gewöhnlich ein zeitdiskretes Systemmodell. In vielen Fällen ist es jedoch vorteilhafter, die Parameter zeitkontinuierlicher Systemmodelle zu bestimmen, da diese eine direkte Aussagen über physikalische Eigenschaften des untersuchten Systems ermöglichen. Zahlreiche Beispiele und Anhänge gestatten dem interessierten Leser auch das Selbststudium.
