Design for the unforeseen: From Holonic production platforms in the direction of a Humane Mechatronics Society offers new, even innovative, principles to dealing with construction and construction platforms that can essentially shift the paradigm of producing structures layout. It offers guidance for the layout of advanced platforms which can take care of unforeseen disturbances and offers a decentralized keep an eye on method that is going a long way past the normal hierarchical keep watch over procedure that at the moment prevails.

The merits are illustrated via quite a few examples and case reviews from diversified fields, with the book's  well-established authors featuring Holonic production platforms (HMS) because the framework for the ‘factory-of-the-future’, and suggesting that the applying of biologically encouraged keep an eye on paradigms can regulate advanced production platforms, and that there are a ways wider purposes for those platforms than natural production. furthermore, the publication explores how this multi-agent regulate framework might be prolonged to different fields equivalent to site visitors, shipping, companies, and well-being care.

  • Provides a pragmatic regulate approach structure that may be utilized to a large choice of platforms in production, transportation, logistics, and robotics
  • Contains a variety of case stories from varied engineering disciplines
  • Provides a decentralized keep an eye on method that is going past the normal hierarchical keep an eye on method that at present prevails
  • A must-read source for researchers and execs alike
