Seminar Fei Minrui 2015 networked control

Networked control and systems for intelligent manufacturing

By Prof. Minrui Fei


This seminar starts with an introduction to the research environment in the School of Mechatronic Engineering and Automation, and Shanghai Key Laboratory of Power Station Automation Technology, Shanghai University, China. Then the background and challenges in intelligent manufacturing, intelligent robot and networked intelligent control and systems for manufacturing are briefly discussed. This talk will cover three main areas which includes: (a) Theories and methods used in networked intelligent control systems, such as embedding data-driven approaches into networked intelligent control systems, and sensor and communication network for intelligent control systems; (b) Vision based intelligent perception methods and applications; (c) Intelligent manufacturing based on above technologies, and the future work.
