Design for the unforeseen: From Holonic production platforms in the direction of a Humane Mechatronics Society offers new, even progressive, principles to coping with creation and construction platforms which could essentially shift the paradigm of producing structures layout. It presents guidance for the layout of complicated platforms that may take care of unforeseen disturbances and offers a decentralized keep watch over technique that is going some distance past the normal hierarchical keep an eye on strategy that at the moment prevails.

The advantages are illustrated by way of quite a few examples and case experiences from various fields, with the book's  well-established authors offering Holonic production structures (HMS) because the framework for the ‘factory-of-the-future’, and suggesting that the applying of biologically encouraged keep watch over paradigms can keep watch over advanced production platforms, and that there are a ways wider purposes for those structures than natural production. moreover, the e-book explores how this multi-agent keep watch over framework could be prolonged to different fields similar to site visitors, delivery, companies, and healthiness care.

  • Provides a realistic keep watch over process structure that may be utilized to a large choice of structures in production, transportation, logistics, and robotics
  • Contains a variety of case reports from diversified engineering disciplines
  • Provides a decentralized keep an eye on method that is going past the normal hierarchical keep an eye on method that at the moment prevails
  • A must-read source for researchers and pros alike
