Article
GRAFCET, as defined in IEC 60848, is a powerful graphical modelling language to define the behavior of sequence controls with discrete event systems. In contrast to other specifications languages, one of the main advantages of GRAFCET is the specification of hierarchical structures. Therefore, distributed and nested program parts within a control a...

Conference Paper
Full-text available
This paper presents an approach for using process knowledge in addition to structural knowledge for plant-wide diagnosis. System diagnosis based on fault-detection and fault-diagnosis often uses structural knowledge (e.g. hierarchies of sub-systems and components) to identify the root cause of faults and malfunctions. The structural knowledge descr...

Today, RFID is used to identify a wide range of work pieces or individual products for tracking their movements through the logistics chain. For future purposes there is a strong demand to make products more intelligent by extending the limited RFID identification technology. We propose in this paper an Autonomous Product Memory. This autonomous ob...

Article
Full-text available
A high level of reliability is a significant requirement for using wireless sensor networks in industrial environments. Model-based evaluation is usually applied in conventional systems to estimate the reliability. In contrast, for analyzing sensor networks, these methods are hardly tested and proven due to the unique properties of that kind of net...

Article
The vision for future identification systems is the comprehensive storage of all information about an item on the item itself. This information set includes among others the bill of materials, the construction plans, instructions for use, the item's history - in short: the item's life story or biography from production to disposal. The usage of thi...

Full-text available
In todays complex technology even specialists find it increasingly difficult to comprehend the technical details of processes in order to find and to remove occurring faults. Therefore, it is necessary to apply methods that automatically find these faults and warn the user timely to avoid harm to man, environment, and machine. This book provides...
Conference Paper
A new diagnostic method for discrete-event systems described by nondeterministic automata networks is proposed in this paper. This method is based on decentralised diagnosers and a coordinator. The main idea is to postprocess the local diagnostic results by applying the natural join operation to remove all contradictions between them. Because the c...

Full-text available
This paper proposes an approach to diagno-sis of discrete-event systems described by nondeterministic automata networks. The diagnosis is performed in a de-centralised way by a number of independent local diag-nosers. The local diagnostic results are send to a coordinator which applies static postprocessing to refine the set of fault candidates. Th...

Conference Paper
This paper investigates the problem posed by direct feedback in automata networks. Such a feedback introduces a direct instantaneous depending of the input of a system upon itself through a signal path within the network. In continuous system theory such a feedback yields an algebraic loop, which may render the overall system ill-posed. In discrete...
Conference Paper
Automata-theoretic models have been used successfully in model-based process supervision and diagnosis. From a practical viewpoint, their main drawback is their complexity, which increases fast with the size of the original discrete-event system. This complexity can be reduced by compositional modelling resulting in an automata network. The reduced...
Article
The paper is concerned with the automatic control of a pinball machine. The plant is a hybrid system because of the continuous movement of the ball that is only inuenced by discrete actuators and only measured by discrete sensors. As no additional optical sensors are used, a challenging discrete event control problem arises. With the help of a Semi...
Article
The stochastic automaton is a simple and easy to handle type of model that has been used successfully in model-based process supervision and diagnosis. For large systems the automaton has a high complexity which can be reduced by structuring this model as an automaton network. For coupled systems the automaton network is directly obtained by compos...

Article
Model-based fault detection relies on checking the discrepancy between the measurements obtained from a monitored process and its model. In general, the model representing the process behaviour has substantial uncertainties. In this contribution, two fault detection methods that explicitly take the modelling uncertainties into account are presented...
Article
Full-text available
The paper is concerned with the design of an automatic player for a pinball machine, which is a challenging hybrid systems control problem. The difficulty lies in both, the poorness of the measurement information as well as the only few possibilities to influence the plant. The plant shows different behaviour, from deterministic to stochastic, depe...
