  • Probabilistic Analysis of Correctness of High-Level Robot Behavior with Sensor Error

    This paper presents a method for reasoning about the effects of sensor error on high-level robot behavior. We consider robot controllers that are synthesized from a set of high-level, temporal logic task specifications, such that the resulting robot behavior is guaranteed to satisfy these specifications when assuming perfect sensors and actuators. We relax the assumption of perfect sensing, and calculate the probability with which the controller satisfies a set of temporal logic specifications. We consider parametric representations, where the satisfaction probability is found as a function of the model parameters, and numerical representations, allowing for the analysis of large examples. We illustrate our approach with three examples of varying size that provide insight into unintuitive effects of sensor error that can inform the specification design process.

    A cyber-physical system consists of a collection of computing devices communicating with one another and interacting with the physical world via sensors and actuators in a feedback loop. Increasingly, such systems are everywhere, from smart buildings to medical devices to automobiles. This textbook offers a rigorous and comprehensive introduction to the principles of _design, specification, modeling, _and _analysis_ of cyber-physical systems. The book draws on a diverse set of subdisciplines, including model-based design, concurrency theory, distributed algorithms, formal methods of specification and verification, control theory, real-time systems, and hybrid systems, explaining the core ideas from each that are relevant to system design and analysis. The book explains how formal models provide mathematical abstractions to manage the complexity of a system design. It covers both synchronous and asynchronous models for concurrent computation, continuous-time models f r dynamical systems, and hybrid systems for integrating discrete and continuous evolution. The role of correctness requirements in the design of reliable systems is illustrated with a range of specification formalisms and the associated techniques for formal verification. The topics include safety and liveness requirements, temporal logic, model checking, deductive verification, stability analysis of linear systems, and real-time scheduling algorithms. Principles of modeling, specification, and analysis are illustrated by constructing solutions to representative design problems from distributed algorithms, network protocols, control design, and robotics. This book provides the rapidly expanding field of cyber-physical systems with a long-needed foundational text by an established authority. It is suitable for classroom use or as a reference for professionals.

  • RealTime Computing and Control

    To engineers involved in designing, developing, or operating control systems for practical applications, research in control may seem an exercise in mathematical abstractions. As an engineering discipline, however, the connection with the physical world is intrinsic to control. Interfacing with sensors and actuators, implementing advanced algorithms on real-time platforms, dealing with sampling time issues, and other such pragmatic matters may seem to be taken for granted in much of advanced control, but in fact there is an extensive body of research that is concerned with these very topics All advanced control algorithms today are hosted on digital computing systems, and any discussion of real-time control applications must address the specific issues and challenges associated with digital implementation. The benefits of digital realization are numerous: software-based computing allows more sophisticated control laws; updates and maintenance are rendered easier in many cases; control systems can be made more compact; and control can more readily be integrated with ancillary functions such as information display, system health management, and data recording. But the digital world brings complications too. For example, the continuous variables of a physical system must now be discretely sampled. Variations in the sampling rate are generally assumed to be negligible, but this is not always the case and a significant adverse impact on control quality can result. Similarly, variable delays arise in the processing of sensory data. In today's processors, even the same sequence of arithmetic operations can take more or less time to execute depending on the state of the processor and operand values. As control programs become more complex, so do their real-time implementations. Most control system computing platforms are used for several tasks in addit ion to executing the base control law. Real-time computing and control thus also involves the solution of difficult scheduling problems. Different tasks can have different priorities, desired execution frequencies, and execution times; there may be dependences between them that require interprocess communication and accessing of shared resources; and failures of sensors and actuators and other abnormal situations cannot be allowed to compromise safety.

  • Industrial Process Control

    In terms of economic impact, the process industries represent the industrial sector that has benefited the most from control technology. A large-scale process plant, such as an oil refinery, can contain over 10,000 individual control loops. A substantial hardware, software, and communications infrastructure, integrated in ?>distributed control systems,?> is required to support automation at this scale. Process control is generally hierarchically organized. Sensors and actuators at the lowest level are interfaced to single-loop controllers, which are coordinated through multivariable control, with supervisory control, scheduling, and management information systems providing additional layers that ultimately connect physical equipment with the enterprise level. (The hierarchy can go even furtherï¿¿-ï¿¿Chapter 13 notes applications at an industrywide level for one process industry, power generation.) There has been steady progress, driven in significant part by the information technology revolution, in expanding the domain of control systems to the higher levels of the hierarchy. Several important technological research areas for process control are reviewed here. Performance monitoring, with classical techniques such as statistical process control and recent extensions thereof, can help capture the objectives of process operation and quantify the degree of success in their achievement. A number of tuning approaches for PID control are summarized, with tuning rules listed for developments spanning half a century. New developments in adaptive and robust control that appear to be well suited for process industry application are identified (see Chapter 5 for more on the topic of adaptive control). Modelbased predictiv e control, virtually synonymous with advanced control in many segments of the process industries, is discussed. And, finally, the chapter notes the important new topic of plant-wide optimization.

    This monograph describes the Reaction Wheel Pendulum, the newest inverted- pendulum-like device for control education and research. We discuss the history and background of the reaction wheel pendulum and other similar experimental devices. We develop mathematical models of the reaction wheel pendulum in depth, including linear and nonlinear models, and models of the sensors and actuators that are used for feedback control. We treat various aspects of the control problem, from linear control of themotor, to stabilization of the pendulum about an equilibrium configuration using linear control, to the nonlinear control problem of swingup control. We also discuss hybrid and switching control, which is useful for switching between the swingup and balance controllers. We also discuss important practical issues such as friction modeling and friction compensation, quantization of sensor signals, and saturation. This monograph can be used as a supplement for courses in feedback control at the ndergraduate level, courses in mechatronics, or courses in linear and nonlinear state space control at the graduate level. It can also be used as a laboratory manual and as a reference for research in nonlinear control.
