Keynote 1: What are the evolutions of diagnostics and maintenance approaches for the Cyber Physical (Production) Systems in the context of Industry of the Future?

Next generation of industry such as those promoted by “Industry of the Future”, “Industry 4.0.” paradigm, holds the promise of increased flexibility/adaptability in production (e.g. manufacturing) to cope with the challenges of producing individualised products as expected by customers with a short lead-time to market and at the cost of mass production. These challenges can only be met by further developing the digitalisation of production systems (integration of physical and IT-based digital worlds) as defended by new manufacturing concepts, such as “Biologicalisation in Manufacturing” or “Cloud Manufacturing” in which data science, smart manufacturing objects (SMO) and services are predominant. This vision should increase global competitiveness by promoting innovative business models mainly driven by servitization (anything-as-a-service) and stakeholders’ collaboration in the way to keep industrial employment in Europe. It led to the introduction of new technologies/techniques like IoT, advanced ICT, Big Data Analytics (BDA), cloud computing and Cyber-Physical Production System (CPPS). More precisely CPPS is a new way to organise the system (heterarchical vs holistic approach) to enable fast integration feedback and control loops throughout distributed manufacturing infrastructures all along its life cycle. So, the resulting organisation is assimilated to a complex manufacturing ecosystem based on interaction of humans, objects (e.g. products, components), customers, society partners … having to offer a dynamic, real-time optimized and self-organizing value chain.

These advanced characteristics imply that the system in support of the value chain need to become more adaptable, agile, robust, resilient … to face fault, unforeseen events while guaranteeing system performance. However, the process of predicting reliability and performance in such context is far from trivial. The main barriers include, at least, the inability to anticipateunknown faults particularly for complex systems, the inability to sustain system functionality and performancein the presence of system anomalies and severedisturbances and the inability to self-adjust system configurations to mitigate internal faults or external intrusions to achieve survivability.To face these barriers, the conventional challenges on diagnostics, prognostics, Fault-Tolerant Control, Maintenance … should be extending, mainly by using Artificial Intelligent tools to construct concepts such self-healing, self-assessment, self-maintenance, self-repair … as promoted by the Prognostics and Health Management (PHM) community.

Thus, the goal of this keynote speech is to provide insights into various aspects of these new concepts within the frame of “Industry of the Future”/CPPS and to discuss directions for future research on these concepts. .

Keynote 2: Deep learning for reliability, Diagnosis and predictive maintenance

Security and cost reduction imperatives are increasingly driving industries towards conditional predictive maintenance.

It is made possible by acquisition of many data related to the integration of different sensors within the systems. The areas of statistical learning in general and deep learning in particular are now sufficiently mature to allow the development of technologies with artificial intelligence that can better anticipate technical failures than humans. This is true provided you have enough data to program it.

This talk will introduce the principles of deep learning and show how to use it for diagnosis (static and dynamic), to manage multimodality, detection of change, outliers, and weak signals analysis.

Keynote 3: Hybrid Bond Graphs for Supervision of Renewable Energy Systems : Application to Power to X Technologies.

The Power-to-X (P2X) technology referring to a number of electricity conversion and energy storage is an innovative approach and can be used to address the intermittency of renewable energy sources, such as wind and solar, and to balance network loads during average and peak electricity demand. Moreover, it has a real potential to contribute not only regarding reduction of greenhouse but also utilization of surplus energy across different industries.

From a practical point of view, the objective of the plenary speech is to present an industrial methodology for implementation of Power-to-X technologies by developing innovative indirect of electricity to fuels (hydrogen) from green sources and direct conversion of electricity with CO2 to platform chemicals developed in the framework of an European project.

From fundamental academic side, supervision (in terms of diagnosis and optimal operating modes management) of such process is complex because of its hybrid aspect due of interconnection between different varieties of sources and storage units, where each or some can be connected and disconnected, leading to a dual discrete-continuous dynamical behavior.

The present speech concerns those two complementary problematics to be discussed (i) state of art and problematics of P2X technologies based on real industrial (ii) literature synthesis of supervision of Hybrid Dynamic Systems(HDS) and use of new formalism named Even Driven Hybrid Bond Graph (EDHBG) for online supervision of Hybrid Renewable Energy Systems HRES applied to a real multisource platform submitted to intermittent sources.

Keynote 4: Advances of Cyber-Physical Control in Medical and Industrial Applications

Cyber-physical Control is a relatively new conceptual view of thinking that considers the problems of system control at different levels from the fundamental physical interactions up to the organization of large-scale complex systems. Besides the layered distinction of varying complexities, CPC investigates the overlaps and vertical cross effects between the layers.

At the University Research and Innovation Center of Obuda University (URIC), we are facing various aspects of CPC in systems and control science, industrial and medical robotics as well as in biological control problems.

In this lecture, three topics of our teams will be touched. First, the latest results of the "Tamed Cancer" project will be discussed that addresses the cancer therapy using the methods of model-based robust and optimal control. The primary goal of this project is the development of personalized automatic drug administration to suppress the growth of the vascular system of early-phase cancer.

The second topic is about the recent advances of autonomous robotic surgery. Similarly to the efforts put in autonomous driving, automation of surgery is an ambitious desire too that certainly will be a game changer. Our team develops a software framework based on the da Vinci Research Kit that handles the so-called surgical primitives autonomously with the supervision of the surgeon.

Last but not least, I introduce a monitoring and anomaly detection method for collaborative robot applications. Based on the well-known One Class SVM algorithm we classify the actual parameter vector recorded from the plant if it belongs to the already learned normal states or represents something new, possibly an anomaly. This approach fits well to the Industry 4.0 concepts and the related data-oriented manufacturing control.

These three topics present a representative cross-section about the essence of Cyber-Physical Control also revealing the core activities of URIC.
