    Describes the architecture of a development environment for computer-aided parallel software engineering. The environment comprises tools for program design, simulation, run-time support and behaviour analysis. Tools are invariably interactive, depending in large part on graphical and visualisation support. SEPP (Software Engineering for Parallel Processing) is an EU-funded consortium of nine part...

  • A transputer interface for the PUMA560 manipulator

    Publication Year: 1994, Page(s):7/1 - 7/3

    The paper describes the design of an advanced control system for the PUMA560 industrial robotic manipulator using a high-performance parallel transputer (T805) network. The Transputer Interface Board (TIE) which establishes a transputer link to the 6503 microprocessors of the PUMA arm controller, is detailed. Much more flexibility can be achieved with this system. The interface period is now reduc... View full abstract»

  • A parallel implementation of the genetic algorithm applied to the flight control problem

    Publication Year: 1994, Page(s):6/1 - 6/3
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (200 KB)

    The technique of eigenstructure assignment (A.N. Andry et al., 1983) is applied to the flight control problem in order to produce specific aircraft handling qualities. Eigenstructure assignment, however, does not directly consider system robustness. The robustness problem may be addressed by the use of the linear quadratic regulator or LQR which allows the choice of the state feedback gains in an ... View full abstract»

  • The design of fault tolerant, high-performance control systems

    Publication Year: 1994, Page(s):5/1 - 5/4
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (268 KB)

    A discussion is given on the fault tolerance of parallel and distributed control systems. There are a number of additional difficulties when designing fault-tolerance into parallel systems compared with the design of sequential systems. In addition to the problems associated with single processor system design, such as error detection and system recovery, parallel system designs must also consider... View full abstract»

  • High performance parallel simulation of telecommunication networks

    Publication Year: 1994, Page(s):4/1 - 4/6
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (384 KB)

    The paper describes techniques used to obtain stable high performance from parallel simulation of large telecommunication networks. A basic parallel simulation model of a telecommunication network and the conservative implementation of the model are discussed and the experimental results on the performance of the simulator are examined.<<ETX>> View full abstract»

  • Generic tools for real-time simulation and control of complex systems

    Publication Year: 1994
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (54 KB)

    Results are reported from a feasibility study on the use of parallel processing platforms for real-time simulation and control. This has developed a back-end accelerator which takes the output of SIMULINK-an icon based menu driven package- and automatically generates executable parallel code without user intervention. Hence the user can design and simulate a control system using the familiar SIMUL... View full abstract»

  • Simulation of a hot strip steel mill-a high performance case study

    Publication Year: 1994, Page(s):2/1 - 2/3
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (127 KB)

    The Lackenby Coil Plate Mill is a large-scale steel plant on Teeside. Control of the rolling process is complicated by the interactions along the stands and the effects of the stresses set up on the material between the stands. Control of width and gauge (thickness) is controlled by a series of feedback and feedforward control loops between more that one stand and special devices called loopers, w... View full abstract»

  • Parallel processing in the real-time simulation of flexible manipulator systems

    Publication Year: 1994, Page(s):1/1 - 1/3
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (220 KB)

    The paper presents an investigation into the utilisation of parallel processing techniques in the real-time simulation of a flexible manipulator system. The performance demands of modern control systems require the employment of complex algorithms with demanding operations. This, in turn, leads to shorter sampling times. Therefore, real-time performances with complex algorithms become difficult to... View full abstract»
