    In this paper, a model of LAN traffic is presented. In the model, the most important components influencing the network traffic are taken into account. Namely, the transmission protocols and information buffering, operating systems, and queuing algorithms as well as user behavior in network applications are considered. The model is based on an "on-off" function. The network traffic observed at the... View full abstract»

    There is a growing trend in developing the wireless machine-to-machine (M2M) communication for factory automation. Currently, most wireless protocols for infrastructureless mobile ad-hoc networks focus on the mobility issue and are mainly suitable for narrowband radio devices. The mechanisms for route update and discovery that work well for wireless mobile ad-hoc networks prove to be redundant and... View full abstract»

    This paper describes the results from a real-time network test bed for a Linux-based control system with event-driven message traffic. Interest has grown in the use of Linux as a cost-effective alternative to expensive proprietary real-time operating systems. However, kernel tasks in Linux can cause random delays in message transmissions. Event-driven traffic can result in unpredictable message in... View full abstract»

    Upcoming car series will be deployed with time-triggered communication protocols due to benefits with respect to bandwidth, predictability, dependability, and system integration. In present day automotive networks, controller area network (CAN) is the most widely used communication protocol. Today, up to five CAN buses and several private CAN networks result from the bandwidth limits of CAN in con... View full abstract»

    In this paper, we address agent coordination from a dynamic systems perspective and propose a dynamic coordination model, which is inspired by biological metabolic systems. A new coordination mechanism through dynamic local adjustment (CDLA) is presented, and coordination is achieved when every agent utilizes explicitly the global system dynamics and performs iteratively a dynamic local adjustment...

    This paper develops a two-stage approach to synthesizing liveness-enforcing supervisors for flexible manufacturing systems (FMS) that can be modeled by a class of Petri nets. First, we find siphons that need to be controlled using a mixed integer programming (MIP) method. This way avoids complete siphon enumeration that is more time-consuming for a sizable plant model than the MIP method. Monitors... View full abstract»
