In this paper, we propose an approach for the multi-objective control of sampled data systems that can be modeled as fuzzy discrete event systems (FDES). In our work, the choice of a fuzzy system representation is justified by the assumption of a controller realization that depends on various potentially imprecise sensor measurements. Our approach consists of three basic steps that are performed in each sampling instant. First, the current fuzzy state of the system is determined by a sensor evaluation. Second, the future fuzzy state is predicted for the possible control actions, and finally, a particular multi-objective weighting strategy allows to determine the control action to be applied. We demonstrate the features of our method by a mobile robot example.

Tampakis, Georgios; Schmidt, Klaus Verner; Boutalis, Yiannis (2009-12-01)
Recently, several approaches for the control of fuzzy discrete event systems (FDES) have been proposed. First results towards the use of FDES in mobile robot navigation have also been presented, which however mainly build on sensory information processing. In this paper, we develop a methodology to compute control actions for the navigation of a mobile robot based on distributed FDES. The FDES description permits to take into account possible uncertainties in sensory information and enables a prediction of ...
Fuzzy Hybrid Systems modeling with application in decision making and control
Boutalis, Yiannis; Moor, Thomas; Schmidt, Klaus Verner (2012-11-28)
Hybrid Systems are systems containing both discrete event and continuous variable components. Many recent contributions address crisp situations, where ambiguity or subjectivity in the measured data is absent. In this paper, we propose Fuzzy Hybrid Systems to account for inaccurate measurements and uncertain dynamics. We present a strategy to determine the most appropriate control actions in a sampled data setting. The proposed approach is based on three basic steps that are performed in each sampling perio...
Hierarchical multitasking control of discrete event systems: Computation of projections and maximal permissiveness
Schmidt, Klaus Verner; Cury, José E.r. (null; 2010-12-01)
This paper extends previous results on the hierarchical and decentralized control of multitasking discrete event systems (MTDES). Colored observers, a generalization of the observer property, together with local control consistency, allow to derive sufficient conditions for synthesizing modular and hierarchical control that are both strongly nonblocking (SNB) and maximally permissive. A polynomial procedure to verify if a projection fulfills the above properties is proposed and in the case they fail for a g...

Nonblocking hierarchical control of decentralized des
Schmidt, Klaus Verner; Moor, Thomas (null; 2005-12-01)
This work considers a hierarchical control architecture for a class of discrete event systems which can also be applied to decentralized control systems. It is shown that nonblocking supervisory control on the high level of the hierarchy results in nonblocking and hierarchically consistent control on the low level. Copyright © 2005 IFAC.
