A Hierarchical Architecture for Control Systems

Ozten Chelai


The progress in hardware and software technologies permits to develop more intelligent applications at macroscopic level. Moreover the complexity of industrial applications demands such kind of onset. The computation is made at a high level of abstraction, almost human and the architecture that specifies the underlying infrastructure is very important. In this context the paper presents an architecture that combines both advantages given by the distributed autonomous architectures and centralized architectures in a generic control system. The system is based on blackboard model and uses agent technology in a distributed environment.
