Special Issue Information

Dear friends and colleagues,

Computational concepts and techniques have always played a major role in control engineering since the first computer-based control systems were put into operation over twenty years ago. Today’s research discoveries at the confluence of theoretical, experimental, and computational science and engineering are enabled by the continuing availability of an ecosystem of advanced computational resources. The dramatic growth in practical applications for machine learning over the last twenty years has been accompanied by many important developments in the underlying algorithms and techniques. This role has, in fact, been accelerating over the intervening years as the sophistication of the computing methods and tools available—as well as the complexity of the control problems they have been used to solve—have also increased. In particular, the introduction of the microprocessor, nono-electronics, nanoprocessors, and their use as a low-cost computing element in a distributed computer control system has had a profound effect on the way in which the design and implementation of a advanced processing and control system is carried out and, to some extent, on the theory which underlies the basic design strategies.

Artificial intelligence and human–computer interactions is another area that is receiving increased attention day by day, due to their advanced ability to solved many previously unsolved problems The development of interactive computing has encouraged a substantial growth in the use of computer-aided design methods and robust and efficient numerical algorithms have been produced to support these methods. Major advances have also taken place in the languages used for control system implementation in terms of machine learning. The algorithms of human language and interaction with the system whose design is based on some very fundamental computer science concepts have been derived and developed over the past decade. With the extremely high rate of change in the field of computer science and electronics, the more recent developments have outpaced their incorporation into new control system design and implementation techniques. With wide adoption of new modalities of scientific and engineering discovery, the demand for computing and interface capabilities and services has increased significantly both in terms of the range of capabilities and overall capacity.

Concurrently, in this Special Issue, we hope to showcase the latest results from researchers, computer engineers, and electronics professionals in their attempts to explore new methods and algorithms while constantly adapting to rapid technological evolution, as well as in pursuing transformational discoveries across all processes and in engineering. In addition, we also encouraging submissions which attempt to solve various problems related to environmental sensing.

Improving safety management and risk evaluation methods is important for the global mining industry, which is the backbone of the industrial development of our society. To prevent any accidental loss or harm to human life and property, a safety risk assessment method is needed to perform the continuous risk assessment of mines. Based on the requirements of mine safety evaluation, this paper proposes the Pb-Zn mine safety risk evaluation model based on the fuzzy-grey correlation analysis method. The model is compared with the risk assessment model based on the fuzzy TOPSIS method. Through the experiments, our results demonstrate that the proposed fuzzy-grey correlation model is more sensitive to risk and has less effect on the evaluation results under different scoring attitudes (cautious, rational, and relaxed).
