By Takeshi Hatanaka, Nikhil Chopra, Masayuki Fujita, Mark W. Spong

Highlighting the regulate of networked robot platforms, this ebook synthesizes a unified passivity-based method of an rising cross-disciplinary topic. because of this unified process, readers can entry numerous cutting-edge study fields through learning in simple terms the historical past foundations linked to passivity. as well as the theoretical effects and methods, the authors supply experimental case stories on testbeds of robot structures together with networked haptic units, visible robot structures, robot community structures and visible sensor community systems.

The textual content starts with an advent to passivity and passivity-based keep an eye on including the opposite foundations wanted during this ebook. the most physique of the e-book involves 3 elements. the 1st examines how passivity can be used for bilateral teleoperation and demonstrates the inherent robustness of the passivity-based controller opposed to verbal exchange delays. the second one half emphasizes passivity’s usefulness for visible suggestions keep watch over and estimation. Convergence is carefully proved even if different passive elements are interconnected. The passivity strategy can be differentiated from different methodologies. The 3rd half provides the unified passivity-based control-design technique for multi-agent platforms. This scheme is proven to be both instantly appropriate or simply extendable to the answer of assorted movement coordination difficulties together with 3-D attitude/pose synchronization, flocking regulate and cooperative movement estimation.

Academic researchers and practitioners operating in platforms and keep an eye on and/or robotics will savour the opportunity of the dependent and novel method of the keep watch over of networked robots offered the following. The restricted history required and the case-study paintings defined additionally make the textual content acceptable for and, it's was hoping, inspiring to students.

Download Nonlinear and robust control of PDE systems: methods and by Panagiotis D. Christofides PDF

By Panagiotis D. Christofides

The curiosity in command of nonlinear partial differential equation (PDE) structures has been brought on through the necessity to in attaining tight allotted keep an eye on of transport-reaction approaches that express powerful spatial diversifications. Drawing from contemporary advances in dynamics of PDE platforms and nonlinear keep watch over thought, keep an eye on of nonlinear PDEs has advanced right into a very lively study sector of structures and keep an eye on. This book---the first of its kind---presents common equipment for the synthesis of nonlinear and strong suggestions controllers for huge sessions of nonlinear PDE platforms and illustrates their purposes to transport-reaction strategies of business curiosity. The controllers use a finite variety of size sensors and regulate actuators to accomplish stabilization of the closed-loop procedure, output monitoring and attenuation of the influence of version uncertainty. starting with an creation to manage of PDE structures, the ebook discusses nonlinear and strong keep watch over of hyperbolic and parabolic PDEs with mounted spatial domain names, and parabolic PDEs with time-dependent spatial domain names. The synthesis of the controllers is played by utilizing geometric and Lyapunov-based regulate options. The publication comprises comparisons of the tools for controller synthesis with different methods and discussions of sensible implementation concerns which can support researchers and engineers comprehend the improvement and alertness of the tools in better intensity. The tools are utilized to various convection-reaction and diffusion-reaction methods, together with a swift thermal chemical vapor deposition reactor and a crystal progress method. The ensuing merits in closed-loop functionality and robustness in comparison to different recommendations for regulate of transport-reaction procedures are tested via computing device simulations. The ebook assumes a uncomplicated wisdom approximately PDE structures and nonlinear regulate. positive factors: * comprises new options for nonlinear and powerful controller layout for PDE structures that aren't integrated in different books * presents perception and basic knowing into the suggestions keep an eye on of PDE platforms * illustrates the applying of the controller layout how to quite a few transport-reaction methods of business curiosity * bargains new study subject matters and provides major contemporary paintings Researchers and graduate scholars up to speed structures conception and approach keep watch over, utilized mathematicians and approach keep watch over engineers will locate this e-book an invaluable source.

Download Invariance Entropy for Deterministic Control Systems: An by Christoph Kawan PDF

By Christoph Kawan

This monograph offers an advent to the concept that of invariance entropy, the important motivation of which lies within the have to care for conversation constraints in networked keep an eye on structures. For the easiest attainable community topology, which includes one controller and one dynamical approach attached by means of a electronic channel, invariance entropy presents a degree for the smallest information fee above which it's attainable to render a given subset of the nation area invariant through a symbolic coder-controller pair. this idea is largely resembling the idea of topological suggestions entropy brought by means of Nair, Evans, Mareels and Moran (Topological suggestions entropy and nonlinear stabilization. IEEE Trans. Automat. keep an eye on forty nine (2004), 1585–1597). The e-book offers the rules of a concept which goals at discovering expressions for invariance entropy by way of dynamical amounts similar to Lyapunov exponents. whereas either discrete-time and continuous-time platforms are handled, the emphasis lies on platforms given by way of differential equations.

Download A Crude Look at the Whole: The Science of Complex Systems in by John H. Miller PDF

By John H. Miller

Imagine attempting to comprehend a stained glass window by way of breaking it into items and analyzing it one shard at a time. when you may possibly most likely study much approximately every piece, you'll don't know approximately what the complete photograph feels like. this can be reductionism—the concept that to appreciate the realm we purely have to examine its pieces—and it really is how such a lot social scientists procedure their work.

In A Crude examine the Whole, social scientist and economist John H. Miller indicates why we have to begin taking a look at entire photos. For something, even if we're conversing approximately inventory markets, desktop networks, or organic organisms, person elements simply make feel after we keep in mind that they're a part of better wholes. and maybe extra importantly, these wholes can tackle behaviors which are strikingly varied from that in their pieces.
Miller, a number one specialist within the computational examine of complicated adaptive platforms, unearths brilliant worldwide styles linking the association of another way substantially varied constructions: it may look crude, yet a beehive’s temperature keep watch over approach will help are expecting marketplace fluctuations and a mammal’s heartbeat may also help us comprehend the “heartbeat” of a urban and adapt city making plans as a result. From enduring racial segregation to unexpected inventory marketplace failures, when we begin drawing hyperlinks among advanced platforms, we will be able to begin fixing what another way should be completely intractable problems.

Thanks to this progressive standpoint, we will ultimately go beyond the boundaries of reductionism and detect the most important new principles. Scientifically based and wonderfully written, A Crude examine the Whole is a strong exploration of the demanding situations that we are facing as a society. because it finds, taking the crude glance may be the one method to actually see.
