Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue will provide a venue for publishing the latest research and developments in the area of complex communication ecosystems of future access enablers of ubiquitous and intelligent infrastructures. Extensive use of information and communication technologies has led to the development of various new concepts and paradigms such as the Internet of Things, Cloud Computing, Big Data, and Artificial Intelligence. Such concepts are used today in every environment, business, or private organization with the purpose of increasing business efficiency, development of new innovative services, and optimization of business processes. In such an ecosystem of interconnected elements and advanced communication between humans and machines, a great challenge is to achieve and retain the required level of security and privacy. Specific emphasis is on the presentation of research results in the field of security of innovative services and intelligent infrastructure in traffic transport logistic ecosystems.

The impossibility of replacing hydraulic drives with other type drives in heavy duty machinery is the main reason for the development of a system for controlling hydraulic power steering. Moreover, the need for remote automatic control of the steering in specific types of mobile machinery leads to significant scientific interest in the design of embedded systems for controlling electro-hydraulic steering units. This article introduces an approach, which has been developed by authors, for robust stability and robust performance analysis of two embedded systems for controlling electro-hydraulic power steering in mobile machinery. It is based on the suggested new more realistic “black box” SIMO model with output multiplicative uncertainty. The uncertainty is obtained by parameters confidence interval and Gauss approximation formula. The embedded control systems used a linear-quadratic Gaussian (LQG) controller and H controller. The synthesis of the controllers was performed on the basis of a nominal part of an uncertainty model. Robust stability and robust performance analyses were performed in the framework of a so-called structured singular value, μ. The obtained theoretical results were experimentally approved by real experiments with both of the developed control systems, which were physically realized as a laboratory test rig. Full article
