Systems for Control

14.1 Introduction

The application of intelligent systems to control has far-reaching implications for manufacturing, robotics, and other areas of engineering. The control problem is closely allied with some of the other applications that have been discussed so far. For instance, a controller of manufacturing equipment will have as its aim the implementation of a manufacturing plan (see Chapter 13). It will need to interpret sensor data, recognize faults (see Chapter 11), and respond to them. Similarly, it will need to replan the manufacturing process in the event of breakdown or some other unexpected event, that is, to plan reactively (Chapter 13, Section 13.9). Indeed, some researchers treat automated control ...
