An Architecture and a Methodology for Intelligent Control



Hui-Min Huang


We outline a multiple dimensional reference model architecture and a methodology for representing and developing intelligent systems. The reference model architecture features multiple dimensions enabling modeling the multiple aspects of complex systems. The canonical form within this framework facilitates an open and scalable system architecture. The well-defined structures facilitate efficient knowledge engineering processes. We describe a submarine automation model performing real-time control to illustrate the application of this reference model architecture.
