Advanced intelligent control is a rapidly developing, complex, challenging field with great practical importance and potential. It is an inter-disciplinary field, which combines and extends theories and methods from control theory, computer science, and operations research areas with the aim of developing controllers that are highly adaptable to significant unanticipated changes.
Intelligent control imitates human intelligence for learning, decision-making, and problem solving. These human characteristics encompass experience, learning, adapting, and changing methods of approach to solve problems. Intelligent control techniques allow the development of an environment to recreate the advantages of natural intelligence with artificial intelligence.
Advances in sensors, actuators, computation technology, and communication networks provide the necessary tools for the implementation of intelligent control hardware. Practical applications using intelligent sensors for this control method have emerged from artificial intelligence and computer-controlled systems as an interdisciplinary field. These are aimed at a variety of relevant scientific research fields involving machine learning, including deep learning, bio-inspired algorithms, petri nets, recurrent neural networks, neuro-fuzzy control, Bayesian control, genetic control, and intelligent agents (cognitive/conscious control) as well as extensions to traditional techniques such as neutrosophic logic, extenics control, and artificial intelligence in general.
This Special Issue aims to present and communicate new trends in the design, control, and applications of real-time intelligent sensor system control using advanced intelligent control methods and techniques. Thus, we welcome the submission of original research papers and review articles that report recent advancements in intelligent control using intelligent sensors. In particular, we encourage submissions related to the use of innovative multi-sensor fusion techniques integrated through Versatile Intelligent Portable (VIP) Platforms that combine computer vision, virtual and augmented reality (VR&AR), intelligent communication (e.g., remote control), adaptive sensor networks, and intelligent decision support systems (IDSS, e.g., remote sensing) and their integration with DSS, such as GA-based DSS, fuzzy sets DSS, rough sets-based DSS, intelligent agent-assisted DSS, process mining integration to decision support, adaptive DSS; computer vision based DSS, sensory and robotic DSS, human–robot (H2R) interaction systems, and machine-to-machine (M2M) interfaces.
We also invite authors to submit articles related to the utilization of new technologies with advanced intelligent control through Versatile Intelligent Portable Platforms, such as enhanced IoT technologies and applications in the 5G densification era, bio-inspired techniques for future manufacturing enterprise control, a cyber-physical systems approach to cognitive enterprise, development of the IT Industry 4.0 concept , industrial systems in the digital age, cloud computing, robotics and automation with applications such as human aid mechatronics, movement in unstructured and uneven environments for military applications, rescue robots, firefighting robots, rehabilitation robots, robot-assisted surgery, and domestic robots.
