After decades of development, industry has evolved from automation to networking, informatization, and intelligence. Under the new system architecture of industrial cloud platform + industrial edge computing, industrial software needs to change. Under the high integration of control, computing, and communication, the new generation of industrial control software must have brand-new features such as high reusability, portability, interoperability, and reconfigurability. In the context of open automation, a system-level modeling language is needed to achieve efficient and reliable industrial edge application design and development.
The next-generation industrial Internet edge computing executable system-level modeling language based on IEC61499 is designed to discrete manufacturing, process control, motion control and other fields, integrating real-time control, data processing, communication configuration, machine vision, visualization, and many other requirements. Autonomous optimization management, flexibility and collaboration and other fields play an important role.
Prof. Dai Wenbin is currently an Associate Professor of the Department of Electronic Information and Electrical Engineering Automation, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, affiliated to the Key Laboratory of “System Control and Information Processing” of the Ministry of Education, director of the Shanghai Jiao Tong University-Rockwell Automation Joint Laboratory, and Secretary-General of the Shanghai Association of Automation. In recent years, he has been mainly engaged in research work in the direction of next generation distributed industrial control software, industrial informatics, and industrial Internet edge computing. As the first author, he has published more than 40 SCI/EI papers in IEEE IEM, T-II, T-SMC, T-ASE and international conferences, and co-published 1 English monograph. Presided over the National Natural Science Foundation of China’s general and youth projects, obtained Shanghai Top Young Talents, Shanghai Pujiang Talents; participated in special projects in the national key R&D program of the Ministry of Science and Technology, and projects of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology. He is an expert of the IEC TC65B/WG15 (IEC61499) standards committee and the chair of the IEEE P2805 edge computing standard working group. He is currently serving as an IEEE-TII associate editor, member of the IEEE-IES Membership Committee, chairman of the IEEE-IES Industrial Informatics Technical Committee, secretary of the IEEE-IES Shanghai branch, and the program chair, publicity chair, and track chair of several IEEE-IES flagship conferences.
