Industrial Developments and Applications of Intelligent Mechatronic Systems
Mechatronic systems consist of mechanical, electrical, electronic, and software components also called 'multi-technology systems'. Based on behavioral characteristics, there are three types of mechatronic systems, such as automated mechatronic systems, intelligent mechatronic systems, and intelligent mechatronic networks. With 'the third coming' of artificial intelligence (AI), intelligent mechatronic systems are getting to be the research hotspot, because many practical problems in mechatronic systems can be solved innovatively by replacing automation with intelligence.
The replaced automation is generated from automated systems, which are pre-programmed to deliver given behavior and are therefore predictable. However, under conditions of uncertainty, intelligent systems are able to achieve specified goals in an unpredictable manner. In other words, these 'flexible' systems can respond to frequent changes without being re-programmed in their surrounding environments. In order to complete this replacement, distributed AI and traditional AI methods are always adopted, such as expert systems, fuzzy logic, or neural network intelligence. As a result, intelligent machine tools, intelligent robots, intelligent geometry compressors, autonomous road vehicles, self-parking cars, pilotless aircraft, and goal-seeking missiles have been manufactured in the industrial domain.
The purpose of this special issue is to gain experience in the field of intelligent mechatronics from both academic and industrial perspectives, focusing on theory and methods that target real-world problems and cases of real applications directly, where in particular studies with state-of-the-art progress and applications are encouraged.
Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:
Industrial development trends of intelligent mechatronic technologies
New industrial applications of intelligent mechatronic systems
Modeling, simulation, and validation of intelligent mechatronic systems
Architectures and algorithms for control intelligent mechatronic systems
Performance monitoring of intelligent mechatronic systems
Experimental design methodologies of intelligent mechatronic systems
Fault detection and isolation of intelligent mechatronic systems
Control, diagnosis, and Supervision of intelligent mechatronic systems
Reliability modeling, design, and evaluation of intelligent mechatronic systems
Resilient control and applications of intelligent mechatronic systems
Emerging control theories and related technologies of intelligent mechatronic systems
