Abstract:In this paper we provide an overview of recent theoretical approaches and technologies that respond to the fundamental challenges of modern factory automation. We classify these major methods and technologies into several groups and, for seven of them-namely: vertical integration of factory automation systems; distributed and decentralised control, smart sensors and actuators in factories; networked control systems and wireless sensors and actuators; autonomy and selforganisation of factories; advanced sensing…
