Seminar Title: Networked Control Systems and Applications in Intelligent Manufacturing and Industrial AutomationDate: Tuesday, 18 August 2015 Time: 13:00-14:00Venue: Conference Room JW707, James Weir Building, 75 Montrose Street, Glasgow G1 1XJAbstractThis seminar first introduces the research environment in Shanghai Key Laboratory of Power Station Automation Technology, School of Mechatronic Engineering and Automation, and Shanghai University, China. Then, theresearch background and challenges in intelligent manufacturing, intelligent robots and key automation technologies for intelligent manufacturing are briefly addressed. The seminar mainly focuses on the following three research topics: a) Theory and methods for networked intelligent control systems(NICSs), combination of data-driven and NICSs, and industrial sensor and control network technologies for NICSs; b) Machine vision based intelligent perception methods, visual multi-data fusion based NICSs, and real-world implementation technologies; c) Intelligent manufacturing-oriented key automation technologies and applications based on networked intelligent control, machine vision, sensor and control network, etc.BiographyDr. Minrui Fei is a full Professor, Ph.D. Supervisor, Director of Shanghai Key Laboratory of Power Station Automation Technology, and Dean of the School of Mechatronic Engineering and Automation, Shanghai University, China.His research interest lies in the field of automatic control science & engineering.
