Abstract

With the dev elopmen t of Internet of Things (IoT), bridging wireless sensor netw orks (WSNs) with other netw orks has become importan t. We divide bridging solutions into tw o categ ories: the hardw are solutions and the middlew are solutions. The hardw are solutions have both low pow er short distance wireless interf aces and other types of transmission interf aces, e.g. GPRS, 3G/4G, via hardw are implemen tations, which is more stable and applicable for the depl oyed sensor netw orks. In the middlew are solutions, the whole system processes appropria te protocol conversion, and independence of hardw are, making it easier to be reused in di eren t applica tions and netw orks. This paper brief y presen ts the implemen tation details and key poin ts of each solution. Particular ly, we deriv e the most appropria te situa tion for each solution from our comparisons and discussions in terms of evaluation applied to di eren t criteria.

An Application of SMC to continuous validation of heterogeneous systems

An Application of SMC to continuous validation of heterogeneous systems

Abstract

This paper considers the rigorous design of Systems of Systems (SoS), i.e. systems composed of a set of heterogeneous components whose number evolves with time. Such components cooperate to accomplish functions that they could not achieve in isolation. Examples of SoS include smart cities or airport management system. The dynamical evolution of SoS behavior and architecture makes it impossible to design an appropriate solution beforehand. Consequently, existing approaches build on an iterative process that takes SoS evolution into account. A key challenge in this process is the ability to reason about and analyze a given view of the SoS (on a fixed number of SoS constituents) with respect to a set of goals, and use the results to eventually predict the evolution of the SoS. To address this challenge, we rely on a scalable formal verification technique known as Statistical Model Checking (SMC). SMC quantifies how close the current view is from achieving a given mission. We integrate SMC with existing industrial practice, by addressing both methodological and technological issues. Our contribution is: (1) a methodology for validation of SoS formal requirements; (2) a formal specification language able to express complex SoS requirements; (3) the adoption of current industry standards for simulation and heterogeneous systems integration ; (4) a robust SMC tool-chain integrated with system design tools used in practice. We illustrate the application of our SMC tool-chain and the obtained results on a case study.

Abstract

Industrial Control Systems (ICS) are getting more vulnerable as they become increasingly interconnected with other systems. Industrial Internet of Things(IIoT) will bring new opportunities to business and society, along with new threats and security risks. One major change that ICS will face will be that of the dynamic network topology. Changes in the network architecture will affect the performance of the ICS along with the efficiency of the security mechanisms that are deployed. The current article investigates how changes in the network architecture of a supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) system affect the performance of an Intrusion Detection System IDS that is based on the One class Support Vector Machine (OCSVM). Also the article proposes an adaptive mechanism that can cope with such changes and can work in real time situations. The performance of the proposed adaptive IDS is tested using traces from a Hybrid ICS testbed with a dynamic topology.

Securing Smart Grid In-Network Aggregation through False Data Detection

Securing Smart Grid In-Network Aggregation through False Data Detection

Authors: Lei Yang, Fengjun Li

Abstract

Existing prevention-based secure in-network data aggregation schemes for the smart grids cannot e ectively detect accidental errors and falsified data injected by malfunctioning or compromised meters. In this work, we develop a light-weight anomaly detector based on kernel density estimator to locate the smart meter from which the falsified data is injected. To reduce the overhead at the collector, we design a dynamic grouping scheme, which divides meters into multiple interconnected groups and distributes the verification and detection load among the root of the groups. To enable outlier detection at the root of the groups, we also design a novel data re-encryption scheme based on bilinear mapping so that data previously encrypted using the aggregation key is transformed in a form that can be recovered by the outlier detectors using a temporary re-encryption key. Therefore, our proposed detection scheme is compatible with existing in-network aggregation approaches based on additive homomorphic encryption. We analyze the security and eÿciency of our scheme in terms of storage, computation and communication overhead, and evaluate the performance of our outlier detector with experiments using real-world smart meter consumption data. The results show that the performance of the light-weight detector yield high precision and recall.

SMC-I with Approach Angle Method for Slip Suppression of Electric Vehicles

SMC-I with Approach Angle Method for Slip Suppression of Electric Vehicles

Authors: Shun Horikoshi, Tohru Kawabe
( 0 downloads)
Abstract

This study presents SMC-I (sliding mode control with integral action) with approach angle method applied to slip suppression problem of electric vehicles (EVs). In SMC, chattering phenomenon always occurs through high frequency switching of the control inputs. It is undesirable phenomenon and degrade the control performance, since it causes the oscillations of the control inputs. Several studies have been conducted on this problem by introducing standard saturation function. However, studies about whether saturation function was really best weren ’t done so much. Therefore, in this paper, the SMC-I with approach angle method is proposed to improve the performance of chattering reduction and slip suppression. Then, several candidate functions for SMC are selected and both performances are compared with the proposed method. In the performance analysis, evaluation function based on the trade-off between slip suppression performance and chattering reduction performance is also proposed. The analyses are conducted in several numerical simulations of slip suppression problem of EVs.

Reconstructing B-patch surface from triangular mesh

Reconstructing B-patch surface from triangular mesh

Authors: L. T. T. Nga, N. T. Khoi, N. T. Thuy

Abstract

B-patch is the main block for creating the multivariate B-spline surfaces over triangular parametric domains. It has many interesting properties in the smooth surface construction with arbitrary topology. This paper proposes a new approach for reconstructing B-patch surfaces from triangular mesh based on a local geometric approximation, along with inverse subdivision scheme. The result B-patches with the low degree cross through most of the data points of the original meshes after some steps of the local geometric approximation. The accuracy of result surfaces can be carried out by changing the position of control points and adjusting knotclouds in each of the iterations. Some concrete experimental examples are also provided to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed method. Because most of the low degree parametric curves and surfaces are often employed in CAGD, this result has practical significance, especially for mesh compression, inverse engineering, and virtual reality.

Abstract

Nowadays, transportation is one of the main air pollution sources and has a significant impact on human health and environmental quality. The electric vehicle is a zero emission vehicle powered by an electric motor with power from an electricity source, usually a battery or super-capacitor. However, monitoring and managing the recharging of electric vehicles represents a challenge. The purpose of this paper is to present a new concept of telemonitoring the battery charging process. The paper presents a general overview of existing techniques and solutions for powering electric vehicles and evaluates different sensors for tele-monitoring the battery. Furthermore, we evaluate the feasibility of the novel concept to monitor redox flow batteries.

Towards a Security Enabled and SOA-based QoS (for the Smart Grid) Architecture

Towards a Security Enabled and SOA-based QoS (for the Smart Grid) Architecture

Abstract

QoS and Security features are playing an important role in modern network architecures. Dynamic selection of services and by extension of service providers are vital in today’s liberalized market of energy. On the other hand it is equally important for Service Providers to spot the one QoS Module that offers the best QoS level in a given cost. Type of service, response time, availability and cost, consist a basic set of attributes that should be taken into consideration when building a concrete Grid network. In the proposed QoS architecture Prosumers request services based on the aforementioned set of attributes. The Prosumer requests the service through the QoS Module. It is then the QoS Module that seeks the Service Provider that best fits the needs of the client. The aforementioned approach is well supplemented with an in depth analysis on existing authentication and authorization protocols. The authors believe that QoS and security can work in parallel without adding extra burden in the Smart Grid infrastructure. This is feasible by building an in advance system for placing, scheduling, and assigning of the requests for energy consumption or production, thus decongesting the traffic in the whole network.

Abstract

In modern manufacturing engineering, a major challenge is the contradiction between the need to reduce the time required to design and manufacture the products and the increasing complexity of product design. Today's market requires more varieties of products, and consequently the equipment and processes should be more flexible. Fixtures play an essential role in production of high-quality and competitive products in multiproduct manufacturing. The paper describes the ways of increasing of machining efficiency of parts. The principally new constructions of functional modules of modular adjustable fixtures for locating and clamping of workpieces are introduced. Use of the proposed fixtures with the possibility of automatized adjustment ensures the spreading of technological capabilities of CNC metal-cutting equipment, decreasing of preparatory time and setup time, and therefore, assists improving of the efficiency of production planning.
