Rich semantic information in natural language increases team efficiency in human collaboration, reduces dependence on high precision data information, and improves adaptability to dynamic environment. We propose a semantic centered cloud control framework for cooperative multi-unmanned ground vehicle (UGV) system. Firstly, semantic modeling of task and environment is implemented by ontology to build a unified conceptual architecture, and secondly, a scene semantic information extraction method combining deep learning and semantic web rule language (SWRL) rules is used to realize the scene understanding and task-level cloud task cooperation. Finally, simulation results show that the framework is a feasible way to enable autonomous unmanned systems to conduct cooperative tasks.
New energy vehicles (NEVs) are gaining wider acceptance as the transportation sector is developing more environmentally friendly and sustainable technology. To solve problems of complex application scenarios and multi-sources heterogenous data for new energy vehicles and weak platform scalability, the framework of an intelligent decision support platform is proposed in this paper. The principle of software and hardware system is introduced. Hadoop is adopted as the software system architecture of the platform. Master-standby redundancy and dual-line redundancy ensure the reliability of the hardware system. In addition, the applications on the intelligent decision support platform in usage patterns recognition, energy consumption, battery state of health and battery safety analysis are also described.
With the rapid development of cloud computing and control theory, a new paradigm of networked control systems called cloud control systems is proposed to meet the requirements of large-scale and complex applications. Currently, cloud control systems are mainly built by using a centralized architecture. The centralized system is overly dependent on the central control plane and has huge challenges in large-scale heterogeneous node systems. In this paper, we propose a decentralized approach to establish cloud control systems by proposing a distributed point-to-point task routing method. A considerable number of tasks in the system will not rely on the central plane and will be directly routed to the target devices through the point-to-point routing method, which improves the horizontal scalability of the cloud control system. The point-to-point routing method directly gives a unique address to every task, making inter-task communication more efficient in a complex heterogeneous and busy cloud control systems. Finally, we experimentally demonstrate that the distributed point-to-point task routing approach is compatible against the state-of-the-art central systems in large-scale task situations.
In the cloud era, the control objects are becoming larger and the information processing is more complex, and it is difficult for traditional control systems to process massive data in a timely manner. In view of the difficulty of data processing in the cloud era, it is extremely important to perform massive data operations through cloud servers. Unmanned aeriel vehicle (UAV) control is the representative of the intelligent field. Based on the ant colony algorithm and incorporating the potential field method, an improved potential field ant colony algorithm is designed. To deal with the path planning problem of UAVs, the potential field ant colony algorithm shortens the optimal path distance by 6.7%, increases the algorithm running time by 39.3%, and increases the maximum distance by 24.1% compared with the previous improvement. The cloud server is used to process the path problem of the UAV and feedback the calculation results in real time. Simulation experiments verify the effectiveness of the new algorithm in the cloud environment.
With the advantage of fast calculation and map resources on cloud control system (CCS), cloud-based predictive cruise control (CPCC) for heavy trucks has great potential to improve energy efficiency, which is significant to achieve the goal of national carbon neutrality. However, most investigations focus on the on-board predictive cruise control (PCC) system, lack of research on CPCC architecture under CCS. Besides, the current PCC algorithms have the problems of a single control target and high computational complexity, which hinders the improvement of the control effect. In this paper, a layered architecture based on CCS is proposed to effectively address the real-time computing of CPCC system and the deployment of its algorithm on vehicle-cloud. In addition, based on the dynamic programming principle and the proposed road point segmentation method (RPSM), a PCC algorithm is designed to optimize the speed and gear of heavy trucks with slope information. Simulation results show that the CPCC system can adaptively control vehicle driving through the slope prediction, with fuel-saving rate of 6.17% in comparison with the constant cruise control. Also, compared with other similar algorithms, the PCC algorithm can make the engine operate more in the efficient zone by cooperatively optimizing the gear and speed. Moreover, the RPSM algorithm can reconfigure the road in advance, with a 91% roadpoint reduction rate, significantly reducing algorithm complexity. Therefore, this study has essential research significance for the economic driving of heavy trucks and the promotion of the CPCC system.
In this paper, stochastic stabilization is investigated by max-plus algebra for a Markovian jump cloud control system with a reference signal. For the Markovian jump cloud control system, there exists framework adjustment whose evolution is satisfied with a Markov chain. Using max-plus algebra, a max-plus stochastic system is used to describe the Markovian jump cloud control system. A causal feedback matrix is obtained by exponential stability analysis for a causal feedback controller of the Markovian jump cloud control system. A sufficient condition is given to ensure existence on the causal feedback matrix of the causal feedback controller. Based on the causal feedback controller, stochastic stabilization in probability is analyzed for the Markovian jump cloud control system with a reference signal. Simulation results are given to show effectiveness of the causal feedback controller for the Markovian jump cloud control system.
