Real-Time Wireless Control Networks for Cyber-Physical Systems
Presented by Prof. Chenyang Lu, Washington University in St. Louis
Prof. Lu's visit is hosted by Prof. Cormac Sreenan and funded by the HEA PRTLI Telecommunications Graduate Initiative.
Wireless control systems represent a new frontier of cyber-physical systems. Rapid adoption of wireless sensing and actuation standards has demonstrated the feasibility of reliable wireless communication for industrial process automation. However, wireless control networks face significant challenges in meeting the real-time communication requirements of control systems. Furthermore, close coupling between control and communication demands a holistic approach to optimize control performance. This talk will present recent advancements in real-time wireless control networks: (1) a new real-time wireless scheduling theory for fast real-time performance analysis of wireless control networks; (2) a cyber-physical co-design approach to optimizing the sampling rates of feedback control loops sharing a wireless control network; and (3) Wireless Cyber-Physical Simulator (WCPS), an integrated environment for realistic simulations of large-scale wireless control systems, as well as two case studies of wireless structural control for resilient civil infrastructure.
