Coordination control of discrete-event systems revisited

Jan Komenda, Tomáš Masopust, Jan H. van Schuppen
2014 Discrete event dynamic systems  
In this paper, we revise and further investigate the coordination control approach proposed for supervisory control of distributed discrete-event systems with synchronous communication based on the Ramadge-Wonham  ...  In other words, unless P=NP, it is not possible to find a polynomial algorithm to compute the minimal coordinator with respect to the number of events.  ...  Research of two first authors was supported by RVO: 67985840.  ...

Communicating Processes with Data for Supervisory Coordination

Jasen Markovski
2012 Electronic Proceedings in Theoretical Computer Science  
We employ supervisory controllers to safely coordinate high-level discrete(-event) behavior of distributed components of complex systems.  ...  Supervisory controllers observe discrete-event system behavior, make a decision on allowed activities, and communicate the control signals to the involved parties.  ...  This gave rise to supervisory control theory of discrete-event systems [20, 8] that studies automatic synthesis of (discrete-event) models of supervisory control software.  ...

INTRODUCTION ybrid systems, those containing both continuous dynamics and discrete transitions, have become the focus of much research in the areas of control and computer science because of their wide  ...  An AUV, like many autonomous systems, contains multiple levels of control that must each satisfy a set of requirements in order to guarantee correctness of the overall system.  ...  In Section II, we briefly revisit the hybrid mission controller architecture for AUVs presented in [1] . Section IV presents a rigorous hybrid system model which formalizes the mission controller.  ...

A Process Algebra for Supervisory Coordination

Jos Baeten, Bert van Beek, Allan van Hulst, Jasen Markovski
2011 Electronic Proceedings in Theoretical Computer Science  
A supervisory controller controls and coordinates the behavior of different components of a complex machine by observing their discrete behaviour.  ...  The main application area of supervisory control that we consider is coordination, referred to as supervisory coordination, and we give an academic and an industrial example, discussing the process-theoretic  ...  This setting covers both the existing deterministic and nondeterministic definition of controllability for discrete-event systems [2] .  ...

Rapid coordination of effective learning by the human hippocampus [article]

James E. Kragel, Stephan Schuele, Stephen VanHaerents, Joshua M. Rosenow, Joel L. Voss
2020 bioRxiv   pre-print
The hippocampus thus supports short-term memory processing that coordinates perception, attention, and behavior in the service of effective spatiotemporal learning.  ...  These findings motivate re-interpretation of long-term memory disorders as reflecting loss of the organizing influence of hippocampal short-term memory on learning.  ...  This work was supported in part by National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke grant T32NS047987.

Character-Focused Narrative Generation for Execution in Virtual Worlds [chapter]

Mark O. Riedl, R. Michael Young
2003 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Because narrative plays such a key role in the understanding of events in our daily lives, the ability to generate narrative can be of great use in virtual reality systems whose purpose is to entertain  ...  Many systems are capable of achieving either one or the other; we present a new approach to narrative generation in the Actor Conference system, which is capable of generating narratives with both plot  ...  -are controlled and coordinated with one another to provide a coherent storyline.  ...

Implementation and impact analysis of a transitional care pathway for patients presenting to the emergency department with cardiac-related complaints

Gabriel E. Soto, Elizabeth A. Huenefeldt, Masey N. Hengst, Arlo J. Reimer, Shawn K. Samuel, Steven K. Samuel, Stephen J. Utts
2018 BMC Health Services Research  
Although a large proportion of cardiac patients can be discharged with appropriate outpatient follow-up, inadequate care coordination often leads to high revisit rates or unnecessary admissions.  ...  Enrollment in the transitional care pathway was associated with a reduced risk of cardiac-related ED revisits (RR 0.22, p < 0.0001), all-cause ED revisits (RR 0.30, p < 0.0001), and admission at second  ...  Acknowledgments The authors thank the physician, nursing, and administrative leaders of SoutheastHEALTH for their support in making this study possible.  ...

Introduction to Hybrid Systems [chapter]

Michael S. Branicky
2005 Handbook of Networked and Embedded Control Systems  
Such networked control systems (NCSs) are an important class of hybrid control systems [40] .  ...  The hybrid nature inherent in embedded control is further complicated by (i) the asynchronous or event-driven nature of data transmission, due to sampling schemes, varying transmission delay, and packet  ...  For example, they may be coordinated by a cruise control system that accelerates and decelerates under different profiles.  ...
