An Implementation of Reconfigurable Network Control based upon Automata Proposal for Three Conveyor Belt Case Study

Benítez-Pérez H., Cárdenas-Flores F., García-Nocetti F.


Online reconfiguration performed by a computer network system needs to be addressed from several perspectives due to complexity onto the system. This paper proposes different modeling approximations to obtain a holistic view of reconfiguration onto complex systems. First model is dynamic system modeling, second is an automaton in order to bound possible scenarios and third model is a Real Time scheduling algorithm to match possible configurations and related control laws.
